How to update or correct Aadhaar details online and offlineI have been searching Internet for the last two days on ways to change AADHAR data. I ended up wasting time by reading similar articles that describe only online methods of changing Aadhar details and I was unable to do. The UIDAI website throw up errors like below.
I wanted to know how we can change change details offline.
Here is a consolidated post on how to update or change aadhar data. I would request you to share this post to as many people as possible because I hope you know the pain behind finding solutions on AADHAR correction and updating.
AADHAR Correction form for changing email, name, date of birth and address to send via post to UIDAI office. Download from here.
How to change mobile number Offline Through Enrollment CenterNote: You cannot change mobile number by sending the aadhar card correction to UIDAI office. You only change email, name, date of birth and address with it. You can change mobile number via online if you are receiving OTP.
If you are not receiving OTP, you have to go to the nearest permanent enrollment center to change mobile number. You cannot do aadhar card correction online without getting OTP in the registered mobile number.
Fill the AADHAR correction formYou need to download the AADHAR correction form. Fill the form correctly and add all the information. I got this from a local enrollment center and I scanned it. I do not have the English or any other language Version.
Download the form
Find Nearest Enrollment CenterFind Permanent Enrollment Center by going to UIDAI website here. Select State, District, Village and check the map to see the place. You can also check with local people to see if any ADHAR updating is done nearby. You can go to any enrollment center anywhere in India even if out of state to change information in AAdhar.
Go to the Enrollment CenterTake filled AADHAR correction form and photostat or original AADHAR Card and go to the nearby AADHAR Enrollment Center and tell them what need to be changed. They will ask you to put 4 fingers in the bio metric machine, take your photo, scan your AADHAR correction form and ask you to verify the entered data. Once you verify it, you will be asked to pay 25 Rs. They give you a receipt of the payment with a request number. The process of updating AADHAR form is over.
Note: You only need the filled correction form and copy of aadhar card to do the changes. No need to take voters id, photos or any other certificates.
It may take twenty days for your information to be reflected in online status and may take up to ninety days for the AADHAR generation and update.
