Do you like the picture of yours on your Aadhaar card? Well, not everyone is happy with the same and many want to change it. You can also change your picture on Aadhaar. If you want to update a photo on your Aadhar card then you need to know that there is no online process for the same and you will have to visit the nearby Aadhaar Enrolment Centre or Aadhaar Sewa Kendra. However, you will have to apply for the change to be made through the online mode before visiting the enrolment centre.
It can be noted that an Aadhaar card is one of the most crucial documents required by an individual to avail several services offered by the central and state governments. The Aadhar card is also used as an identity proof as it contains the person's name, address, photo, biometric details, etc. One can also get details like demographic information (name, address, date of birth, age, gender, mobile number, email address, relationship address and information sharing address), biometric information (Iris, fingerprints and facial photograph) updated on the Aadhaar.
