The Aadhaar card update process can now be done online from the comforts of home. All you need is to have your proof of address on you.

Aadhaar card update process and details can be a pain, especially in the post COVID era where safety is of prime concern. The process to update Aadhaar initially required you to go to the nearest bank or Aadhaar center and get the changes made manually after paying a small fee. However, there’s a now a self service portal from UIDAI that one can use to update address details without going out.

It’s called the Self Service Update Portal (SSUP) that allows Aadhaar card holders to change/update their details manually without going to a Aadhaar center. The fee still remains the same at 50 per request and the cardholder has to make the payment at the time of checking out of the portal.
