UIDAI tightens rules for updating DOB in Aadhaar: Details here
While the UIDAI is making some processes easier for Aadhaar holders, others are being tightened.
Till now, the date of birth in the Aadhaar database could be changed multiple times by simply visiting an enrolment centre, FE reports.
Now, people will be allowed to update it at enrolment centres only once. For subsequent changes, they'll have to visit the regional UIDAI office.
The UIDAI's notification regarding the change in process
In a notification, UIDAI said: "...The date of birth of resident can be updated only once. In case it is to be updated more than once, it can only be done through an exception handling process which may require the resident to visit the Regional Office of UIDAI."
Soon, no more address proof needed to update address
The UIDAI is also launching a new system to make it easier for subscribers to update their address.
It will be particularly beneficial for those residing outside their home, many of whom might not have proof of address.
Currently, you have to submit one of 35 documents while updating your address, but the new system, which will go live from April, will have no such requirement.
