How to Download the Aadhaar Update Form

An Aadhaar card is not merely a document with a user’s information but one of the most important documents to be submitted for a major number of purposes like to open a bank account, avail government schemes/benefits, and many more. An Aadhaar number is carefully generated after the applicant’s demographic information and biometrics data verification. In case the verification fails, the applicant is not provided with any Aadhaar number.

An applicant can enrol for an Aadhaar card by visiting the official Aadhaar enrolment centre. After the completion of the Aadhaar enrolment, he/she is given an acknowledgement slip to check Aadhaar card status. Often, there comes a situation when the Aadhaar card is issued, but it requires certain corrections such as changes in demographic details. Thus, to manage such a situation, UIDAI has added a feature in its official website from where the user can download the Aadhaar update form to update or correct Aadhaar online.

Also called the Aadhaar enrolment correction update form, an Aadhaar update form can be downloaded directly from the UIDAI website. In this blog, we will provide you with essential information about the Aadhaar update form and how to download it.
