It is often the case with Aadhar card’s when we find ourself in a spot where either our details are not correct or they are simply old. Thanks to UIDAI now we can update or correct these details ourselves through online or the old fashioned offline way. Those who have access to Internet, they can opt for online mode, where you just have to fill the correction form and upload it along with the supporting documents at the official UIDAI website and those who do not have internet access they can opt for the offline mode, that is, by post, where you have to download the Aadhar card update/correction form, print it, fill it up correctly and then send it by post along with the required supporting documents.
Whether you are updating your Aadhar details online or offline, supporting documents are a must, or your update request will be considered invalid and incomplete. The supporting documents will act as a proof that whatever details you want to change or update, all are genuine and are not fake. For any Governmental work, document proof is a must.
Different types of Aadhar card update or correction’s have different lists of supporting documents:
Accepted Proof of Identity documents (PoI)
Proof of Address documents (PoA)
Proof of Relationship documents
Date of Birth supporting documents (PoB)
Note : You only have to provide UIDAI (The Unique Identification Authority of India) with one Proof for your respective correction.
Conclusion : Always keep the photocopies of all the above mentioned documents handy. You never know when you may need them.
