Aadhaar Update – New Procedures for Address and DOB changes
UIDAI has now bought many changes for the people of India where they can change or update their date of birth, Address changes in their Aadhaar cards.
The new rule has been introduced as a new notification in the Aadhaar (Enrolment and Update) Regulations, 2016. “Provided that the date of birth of resident can be updated only once. In case the date of birth is to be updated more than once, it can only be done through an exception handling process which may require the resident to v,isit the Regional Office (RO) of the UIDAI.”
The officials at the Regional Office will use ‘exception handling process’ to make the changes in the date of birth field.
As of the new changes are mentioned below :-
- From now on, any change in the Aadhaar database won’t be entertained via post. Earlier, users could have filled in the update form, and sent that to the UIDAI via post for updating the records. From now, the updates can be made only via UIDAI portal or the nearest enrollment center.
- For updating address, UIDAI has now announced a pin-based verification process. Once the request to update new address has been sent in, UIDAI will send a pin to the new address, via post. Once the user gets that pin, he or she needs to enter the same in the UIDI portal to update the address. This new process will go live effective January 1st, 2019.
