New Delhi: Aadhaar Card is one of the most important identity proof in India. The 12-digit virtual ID is required for availing of several services offered by state and central government agencies. Therefore, it’s essential to keep your Aadhaar Card details updated. And thanks to the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), you can easily change your details such as date of birth, name and phone number, among others, linked to an Aadhaar Card.
There are several details in the Aadhaar card that you can update from the comfort of your home. However, for changes such as updating photos or phone numbers, you need to visit the nearest Aadhaar Enrolment Centre.
