Your Aadhaar is an effective tool to access various services offered by government (and private) agencies from time to time. It is important that you regularly update the information on Aadhaar.
If you have moved to a new address; or, your child has recently turned 5 years (or 15 years) of age; or, your email ID or phone number has changed from the one mentioned in your Aadhaar; or, you wish to add your mobile number and/ or email ID - then you should "Update" the information in the Aadhaar database.
You can follow any of these three simple ways to update information in Aadhaar database:
- Online Self-Service Portal (for updating demographic information)
If your mobile is registered in Aadhaar, you can visit the https://resident.uidai.net.in, and follow the instructions for updating address (or change of name following marriage etc.).
- Permanent Enrolment Centers (for updating Demographics / Biometrics / Photograph)
Visit a nearby Permanent Enrolment Centre (PEC) along with copies of relevant documents such as Identity/ Address proof. You can also update your photograph and biometrics. A list of PECs is available at https://appointments.uidai.gov.in/easearch.aspx
