New Delhi: The Unique Identification Authority of India or UIDAI has amended the rules regarding change of name, gender and date of birth in Aadhaar card. You can then update your name and date of birth and gender on the Aadhaar card. But do you know how many times life can be changed on Aadhaar card and what are its conditions?
Aadhaar card cannot be changed repeatedly
UIDAI repeatedly refused to update the Aadhaar card. According to a memorandum from UIDAI’s office, an Aadhaar card holder can update his name on his Aadhaar card only twice in his life. As far as the date of birth is concerned, the rules regarding this change are even stricter. In fact, the birth date on the Aadhaar card can be updated only once in a lifetime. This allows the date of birth recorded at the time of Aadhaar enrollment to be changed (plus or minus) for a maximum of three years. At the same time, gender can be changed once in Aadhaar card.
Terms of change of Aadhaar name
On the Aadhaar card, you can only update your name on this condition if there is a slight change. E.g.,
– Spelling correction
– If you want to change the order
– Complete form with short form
– If you want to change the name after marriage.
It is important to note that you will need to submit verified documents to change the name, date of birth and address on the Aadhaar card. Updating more name, gender or date of birth than the specified number on the Aadhaar card is possible only through an exceptional handling process. At the same time, no documents are required to update mobile numbers or emails. But OTP is required before updating mobile number or email in Aadhaar.
If there are any errors in your Aadhaar card such as wrong name, mobile number, date of birth or your gender, or incomplete information, then the user can correct these errors manually. If you need to update your Aadhaar card, first go to the website https://uidai.gov.in/, This is the official site of Aadhaar Card. After opening the website, you need to click on the ‘Update Your Aadhaar Card’ tab at the bottom right.
