To guarantee the accuracy of their data, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has recommended all Aadhaar number holders update their supporting papers in Aadhaar at least once every 10 years from the date of registration. In addition, the UIDAI has developed a free Aadhaar Card document update service for netizens.
The service is an extension of UIDAI’s free Aadhaar Card document updation. People may now update their Aadhaar records for free till September 30, as opposed to the earlier deadline of June 14.
The free service is only available through the myAadhaar portal. If you want to utilize physical Aadhaar centers, you will still be charged Rs 50.
If you need to update your demographic information (name, date of birth, address, and so on), you have two choices: use the normal online update service or contact your local Aadhar center. Standard fees will be levied in the latter situation.

Over the last 10 years, the Aadhaar number has become a widely accepted method of identity for Indian individuals. Aadhaar-based identification is utilized for service delivery in around 1,200 government programs and activities overseen by both the federal and state governments. Aadhaar is also being used by a variety of other service providers, including financial institutions like banks and NBFCs, to effortlessly authenticate and enroll customers.
Under the Aadhaar Enrolment and Updating Rules, 2016, Aadhaar number holders are entitled to update their supporting documents in Aadhaar at least once every ten years from the date of enrolment to ensure the accuracy of their data.
