Updation of information: 


Aadhaar, being a unique identity proof, needs to remain updated. The Aadhaar holders must update their details every 10 years from the date of creation of the Aadhaar number.  


The updates can be done online on the UIDAI website, through the UIDAI mobile application, or offline by submitting the form to the nearest Aadhaar enrollment centre. 


With the new rules, UIDAI aims to facilitate easier updating of details through any mode to keep the Aadhaar numbers updated. 


Early this week, the Employees’ Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) removed the requirement for Aadhaar for proof of date of birth, saying its primary purpose is ID proof and not for date of birth verification as per the Aadhaar Act, 2016.
