The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) on Friday launched a new facility to enable people update their demographic profile by post or by way of an online application.
Update requests can be submitted online through the self-service update portal, which will accept requests for changes in name, gender, date of birth, address and mobile number, the authority said in a statement.
This apart, residents can send their request for update on these five fields by post to any of the six regional offices of UIDAI based on the local language in which they were enrolled, the statement added.
Earlier, the update option was available at the enrolment or update centres alone.
“UIDAI recognises the need for facilitating residents to update their demographic andbiometric information up-to-date using multiple channels. The facility is one such service made available for the convenience of residents,” the statement said.
To avail the new facility residents can log on to http://www.uidai.gov.in/update-your-aadhaar-data.html to update and submit requests along with relevant documents.
