Apply for Corrections in Aadhar Card Online



How to make corrections in Aadhar Card Online

Aadhar card has slowly become the essential proof to avail the government services.  As such, it is essential to have the Aadhar card with correct and up-to-date details.  I have already made a post on applying for aadhar card couple of years back. Based on the queries and follow-ups which I have received on the post, I am writing this post on how to make corrections in the details provided in the Aadhar card just by few clicks online.


Details which can be changed in the Aadhar Card online:

1. Name
2. Gender
3. Date of Birth
4. Address
5. Mobile Phone Number
6. Email ID

Steps to apply for corrections in Aadhar Card online:

Step-1 – Login to the Portal:

The first step in applying for the corrections in the Aadhar card is to login to the “Aadhar Self Service Update Portal” by clicking the below link or click here:

https://ssup.uidai.gov.in/web/guest/update

A screen like below will open:


We need to enter the Aadhar number for which the corrections to be applied and the OTP (One Time Password) will be sent to the mobile number which was registered with the Aadhar number while applying for the same.

Kindly note, the OTP will be sent the mobile number which was updated while applying for the Aadhar card. In many instances, I have seen people have given one single mobile number for the Aadhar number applied for all their family members. So kindly make sure to check the OTP in that specific mobile number.

Also note that, the OTP is valid only for 15 minutes from the time they sent the SMS. Kindly make sure to enter the OTP as soon as you receive.

Step-2:  Choosing the fields / data which need to be changed / corrected:

After entering the OTP, the below screen will open and we need to check the details which need to be changed / corrected.  We can check multiple fields in case we want to make multiple changes and corrections in Aadhar card.


Step-3:  Applying for the changes selected and uploading the valid documents for supporting the corrections / changes:

1) For changes / corrections in Mobile Number and Email ID and Gender:

No documents are needed for the corrections / changes in the below fields:
a) Mobile Number
b) Email ID
c) Gender

For the mobile number and Email ID, we will be asked to enter the new mobile / Email ID and then to submit it. No other formalities required. Once submitted, make a note of the Update Request Number (URN) which will be used to track the status.

2) For changes / corrections in Name:

There may be some error in the spelling or we might have changed our name. In both the instances, we can update the aadhar details by typing the new name in the required field. But we need to upload the proof of Identity to support the name change / corrections.

Note:

1)  The corrections can be done online only if the mobile number was registered with the Aadhar number.

2) If the mobile number was not registered, or the registered mobile was not accessible we have to apply for the corrections in offline mode.

Kindly share this post / details with those who can’t access the internet like the ones who are working at our home and help them to apply for the corrections if any. This will help them to avail the subsidies from the Government (if any) without any hindrance.
