Introduction

Aadhaar is a 12-digit unique identification number assigned to every citizen of India by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI). Every Indian citizen is expected to possess this identification document as it contains biometric information unique to every person. The Aadhaar card has information such as the name, date of birth, address, and contact number mapped to their biometrics. As a result, it becomes a basis to obtain all the information useful in streamlining many processes involving documentation and verification, easily and instantly.

It is important to have the current and correct information on the Aadhaar Card. It serves as the basis for personal identification, to avail of all the government’s welfare schemes. It is further mandatory for services like opening a bank account, availing of a loan, getting a mobile connection, etc.

Many personal information changes may occur to the information saved in the Aadhaar during the lifetime of the individual. Major life events like marriage, change of residence and any related event can cause those changes. It is important to keep your Aadhaar card updated.

Important: Before learning to change or update information in your Aadhaar card at least one mobile number must be registered with your Aadhaar.
