Last date to update Aadhaar details for free extended again; check new deadline

The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has once again extended the deadline for free updation of Aadhaar details through the myAadhaar portal.

According to an office memorandum issued by the UIDAI on December 11, 2023 “Based on the positive response from the residents, it is decided to extend the facility for 3 more months i.e. from 15.12.2023 to 14.03.2024. Accordingly, the facility for document update shall continue to be free of cost through myAadhaar portal at up to 14.03.2024.”

It must be noted that while online updation is free, updation of documents done at physical Aadhaar centres will be charged a fee of Rs 25.

Why should Aadhaar data be kept updated always

UIDAI has been urging people to update their Aadhaar details if they have not done in the last 10 years. This is being done to curb Aadhaar-related frauds.

“Please update your Aadhaar for continued accuracy of demographic information,” said the UIDAI on their website. Data sets that can be updated online include name, address, date of birth, gender, phone number and email ID. Photo, Iris or other biometric information can also be updated but only at physical Aadhaar centres.
