Individuals who already have an aadhar card and wants to get the details updated or corrected can do so by filling in the Aadhaar Card Correction Form which is available both in the UIDAI’s website or at any of the Aadhaar Enrollment Center.
Any kind of incorrect or wrong data in the aadhar card can cause issues at a later point of time, so to avoid the future consequences head out to the nearest aadhaar enrollment centre and get the aadhar details corrected at the earliest. Updating the Aadhaar card will allow the people to carry the latest information in the Aadhaar.
Aadhaar Cardholders can make corrections or updates to your residential address via online mode. One has to first log in to the UIDAI self-service portal to do the corrections.
After submission of the request, you will be receiving an Update Request Number (URN). You can track the status of your address change/correction request online on the Aadhaar portal using this number.
The Aadhaar Correction Form/ Enrollment Form is available at all the enrollment or update centres or you can even get it online in PDF form on the UIDAI website.
As the Aadhaar Enrollment / Correction Form is the same, one might get confused as to what information should be filled in while submitting the correction/rectification request. One should follow the simple rule by following only the below-mentioned details:
The applicant should provide his/her full name as per the legal records without any salutations. One should produce relevant valid proof of identification such as PAN Card, Driving Licence, Voters ID and so on.
Select the gender option accordingly.
Age or Date of Birth (DoB)
Applicants should enter the date of birth in DDMMYYYY format. One should provide the correct and accurate information to avoid discrepancies at a later stage. If in case, if a family member is unaware of the exact date of birth, then you can enter the estimated age in years.
If the applicant has valid documentary evidence to support their date of birth then tick against ‘Verified’ option and if you do not have any proof then select ‘Declared’ option.
One should always provide the accurate and correct residential address in full and should always carry an original proof of address to the enrollment centre for verification. The residential address forms the important aspect of the Aadhaar card as post successful completion of the enrollment process, the card will be sent to the aforementioned address. If in case, if you make an error in the address, then you will not receive the aadhaar card.
Along with the address, also include your mobile number and e-mail address. The mobile number and email id provided here will become the registered mobile number and registered email id with aadhaar card.
If the aadhaar applicant is a child who is aged below 5 years, then the name and the aadhaar number of the father, mother or guardian has to be compulsorily provided in the form.
Note: This section is not compulsory for adults.
In this section, mention the list of supporting documents which you will be submitting PoA (Proof of Address), POI (Proof of Identity), DOB (Date of Birth) and PoR (Proof of Relationship).
If in case, the applicant does not have a valid proof of identity or address, then they can use the verification based on Head of the Family (HoF) or introducer. In such cases, it is mandatory to provide the EID number or Aadhaar number of the HoF or Introducer.
