UIDAI New Guideline For Aadhaar Card Holders

The new guidelines from UIDAI suggest that aadhaar users (who have had aadhaar cards for over 10 years now and have not updated their details) update their details such as identity proof and residence proof.

For user convenience, UIDAI also explains that this process can now be completed in both ways – online through the official website and offline at aadhaar centres.

As per UIDAI’s official statement, “Any person who had got their Aadhaar made 10 years back and not updated the information in any of the subsequent years are being requested to do document updation”.

However, UIDAI has not revealed if this update process is mandatory or not.

It further added, “The updation of identification documents and proof of residence is being done on payment of the requisite fee. This facility can be accessed on My Aadhaar portal or by visiting the nearest Aadhaar centre”.

In the Aadhaar database, iris scans, biometric scans, and a photo are saved as identification proof.

“The Aadhaar number has become a popular method of identifying people over the past ten years. Aadhaar numbers are used in a variety of government programmes and services,” as per the statement.

Further UIDAI also alerts the users by saying that the information update process is necessary for all the holders to avail of government benefits and to avoid any identification or certification-related issues.

Also, in August, a circular was released by UIDAI that said, “those who don’t have an Aadhaar number or enrolment slip, may not be able to avail government subsidies and benefits”.

The circular from UIDAI was issued to all the Ministries and State Governments and is aimed towards tightening the aadhaar rules for those who are misusing the unique ID to avail of benefits of Government schemes and subsidies.
