Aadhaar is a 12-digit individual identification number issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India on behalf of the Government of India. It is crucial to ensure that the information is accurate and up to date. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to update your Aadhaar data and how much it will cost.
If you want to access Aadhaar’s online services, a registered mobile phone number is required. You cannot update mobile phone number online. To update your mobile phone number, you need to visit the nearest Aadhaar Seva Kendra (ASK) or Aadhaar Enrollment Update Center.

Fee charged for updating Aadhaar details:

1. Mandatory biometric update – FREE

2. Demographic update (any kind) – Rs. 50/- (VAT included)

3. Biometric Update – Rs. 100/- (VAT included)

4. Biometric with demographic update Rs. 100/-(taxes included)

5. Aadhaar download and color print on A4 sheet – Rs.30/- per Aadhaar (VAT included). (Font: UIDAI)

“If visiting an Aadhaar registration center, the resident may note that there are no additional charges for the Aadhaar registration/correction/update form. Updating more than one field in a single instance is considered an update. These charges include any taxes. Residents can make the payment online when booking an appointment online from the UIDAI website or at the ‘Cash Counter’ available on ASK.”

How many times can you change the name, date of birth and gender on the Aadhaar card?

Name update in Aadhaar

The Aadhaar card holder can now only change their name on the Aadhaar card twice, according to a memo from the UIDAI office.

Date of Birth (DoB) Update Aadhaar Card

DoB can be changed in your Aadhaar only once. Beyond the limit, it will be taken as an exceptional case. According to the UIDAI, “cases that exceed the previous limit will be considered as exceptional cases.” After due diligence by authorized officials, the request will be approved/rejected. You can update the Date of Birth (DoB) on your Aadhaar with a valid proof of Date of Birth (DoB) that has your name on it.

Gender update on Aadhaar card

According to the memo, gender details can only be updated once. According to the UIDAI Aadhaar update FAQ, “You can perform a gender update a second time through exception handling. For this reason, you can perform the update at the Aadhaar Center and then approach the corresponding UIDAI Regional Office for the approval of the update under exception”.
