Aadhaar is one of the most important documents these days. To avail of most government schemes, opening bank accounts and other works, Aadhaar has become a mandatory document. This makes it even more crucial document. Hence, keeping all details up to update in this document is essential in order to avoid any inconvenience.

Therefore, the government has made the document update facility online for Aadhaar free for three months till June 14. Earlier, residents were required to pay Rs 25 to update their documents on the Aadhaar portal. However, people should note that this service is free only on myAadhaar portal. This means, they still have to pay a fee of Rs 50 at physical Aadhaar centres to change demographic details including name, date of birth, address, etc.

“The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has decided to allow residents to update documents in their Aadhaar online free of cost, a people-centric move that will benefit millions of residents…The free service is available for the next three months, i.e., March 15 to June 14, 2023,” the official statement said.

Updated documents contribute to greater ease of living, better government service delivery, and a higher success rate for Aadhaar authentication.

Aadhaar number holders are allowed, under the Aadhaar Enrollment and Updating Rules, 2016, to update their supporting papers in Aadhaar at least once every ten years after the date of enrollment in order to maintain the correctness of their information. This can be done by submitting documents that serve as proof of identity and proof of address.

According to the statement, the online document update service for Aadhaar is free only on the myAadhaar portal, and a fee of Rs 50 will still be charged at physical Aadhaar centers.

The UIDAI has been urging residents to update their demographic details by uploading Proof of Identity and Proof of Address documents, particularly if their Aadhaar was issued a decade ago and has not been updated, as this will enhance the ease of living, service delivery, and authentication success rate.

The central and state governments’ around 1,200 government programmes and schemes use Aadhaar-based identification to provide services. In addition, a number of other services—including banks and other financial institutions—use Aadhaar to effortlessly authenticate and onboard consumers.
