Aadhaar is an essential document that serves as proof of identity and address for Indian citizens. It is crucial to keep your Aadhaar information up-to-date to avoid any inconvenience in the future. In this article, we will cover everything you need to know about updating your Aadhaar information.
What You Can Update in the Self Service Update Portal (SSUP)
The Self Service Update Portal (SSUP) allows you to update your address online. However, if you want to update your demographic details, such as your name, date of birth, gender, mobile number, or email, as well as your biometrics, such as your fingerprints, iris, and photograph, you will have to visit a Permanent Enrolment Center.
Mobile Number Registration Requirement for SSUP Update
To use the online SSUP service for updates, your mobile number must be registered with Aadhaar. If your mobile number is not registered, you can still visit the nearest Permanent Enrolment Center with supporting documents.
Updating Your Mobile Number
You can update your mobile number by visiting a Permanent Enrolment Center. It is essential to keep your mobile number up-to-date as it is linked to your Aadhaar information.
Adding Your Father’s/Husband’s Name to Your Address
The relationship details in your Aadhaar address are optional and standardized to C/o (Care of). You can add your father’s or husband’s name to your address in this format.
Updating Your Address in Your Local Language
In addition to English, you can update or correct your address in any of the following languages: Assamese, Bengali, English, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Odia, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu, and Urdu.
Tracking Your Address Update Request
After successfully submitting your online address update request, you will receive a URN (Update Request Number) of the format 0000/00XXX/XXXXX. This number will be shown on your screen and sent to your registered mobile number via SMS. You can use this URN and your Aadhaar number to track the status of your Aadhaar update.
Rejection of Update Request Due to Invalid Documents
Your document for online address update should be valid, in your name, and a clear and colored scan of the original document. If your update request is rejected due to invalid documents, ensure that you follow these guidelines before submitting a new request.
Keeping your Aadhaar information up-to-date is crucial for various reasons, including government schemes, banking, and financial services. With the Self Service Update Portal (SSUP) and Permanent Enrolment Centers, updating your Aadhaar information has never been easier. Ensure that you follow the guidelines and keep your Aadhaar information current to avoid any inconvenience in the future.
