On Thursday, the government changed several of the Aadhaar rules. According to the new rules, individuals should update their Aadhaar-related documents and information at least once every ten years from the enrollment date. This procedure will aid in ensuring that the data in the Central Identities Data Repository is accurate (CIDR).
Details about The government recommends everyone to update Aadhaar information every ten years
“Aadhaar number holders may, on completion of every 10 years from the date of enrolment for Aadhaar, update their supporting documents in Aadhaar, at least once, by submitting Proof of Identity (POI) and Proof of Address (POA) documents…so as to ensure the continued accuracy of their information in the CIDR, in such a manner as may be specified by the Authority from time to time,” states a gazette notification from the ministry of electronics and IT.
Although upgrading documents is not required, it is highly recommended that everyone update their Aadhaar supporting documents. To account for the modifications, the Aadhaar (Enrolment and Update) Regulations have been modified.
Aadhaar POI (Proof of Identity) documents with a person’s name and photo are accepted by UDAI. Passports, PAN cards, voter ID cards, driving licenses, and other identifying documents can be used as proof.
On the myAadhaar portal and myAadhaar app, UDAI has already added a specific option called “update document” for updating the papers. To use the service, you can also go to any Aadhaar enrollment location. Holders of Aadhaar cards will be able to amend information by updating POI and POA documents (which contain name and address information).
While you can update your address online using the Self Service Update Portal (SSUP), you must visit a Permanent Enrolment Center in order to update other Aadhaar details, such as your name, address, date of birth, gender, mobile number, email, and biometrics (fingerprints, iris scan, and photograph).
