New Delhi: The Aadhaar number is a 12-digit random number issued by the UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India) to residents of India after completing the verification process mandated by the Authority. Aadhaar serves as proof of identity and address anywhere in India. The process for enrolling in Aadhaar involves collecting biometric data (photograph, iris scan, fingerprints) and demographic information from residents, including their residential addresses.
Updating the photograph on your Aadhaar card is as important as updating demographic details such as changes in your name, address, or date of birth. Updating or changing details on the Aadhaar card is straightforward. You can update your Aadhaar details at any nearby Aadhaar Enrolment Centre.
