You can update documents in Aadhaar online for free till June 14, 2023, informed the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI).
Do you have to make document updates in Aadhaar? If yes, you can do it online for free. This service is free on myAadhaar portal for three months starting from March 15 to June 14, 2023. Informing about the same Aadhaar, the official Twitter account of the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) tweeted, "UIDAI makes online document update in Aadhaar free of cost; to benefit millions of residents. This service is free on myAadhaar portal for 3months -- from March 15 to June 14, 2023."
As part of digital india initiative, the UIDAI took the decision and is urging residents to get the benefit of free document update facility on myAadhaar portal. It is important to note that this service is free only on myAadhaar portal and will continue to attract a fee of Rs. 50 at physical Aadhaar centres, as in the case earlier.
The UIDAI has been encouraging residents to upload Proof of Identity and Proof of Address (PoI/PoA) documents to revalidate their demographic details, especially if Aadhaar was issued 10 years back and never got updated. This will help in improved ease of living, better service delivery and enhances authentication success rate, said the Ministry of Electronics and IT.
If there is a need to change demographic details (Name, Date of Birth, Address, etc), the residents can use regular online update service, or may visit nearest Aadhaar centre. In such cases normal charges will apply.
