UIDAI Implements Revised Aadhaar Enrolment and Update Guidelines

Aadhaar enrolment and update regulations have been revised, according to a notice posted by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI). There are now updated forms available for Aadhaar enrollment and changes. For residents and non-residents (NRIs) requesting Aadhaar enrollment or updates, many forms are available. These new regulations are intended to make it easier to update demographic information in the Aadhaar system, including addresses.

Updation of Aadhaar Details

The new rules provide users with two easy ways to update data in the Central Identities Data Repository (CIDR): they can use the official website/mobile application or go to an enrollment center. Any more Aadhaar information changes required a trip to the enrolling facility.

The new regulations do not include any restrictions, suggesting that in the future, owners of Aadhaar cards would also be permitted to update more information online, such as mobile numbers.

Aadhaar Enrollment Forms

New forms have taken the place of the old ones for Aadhaar enrollment and updating Aadhaar data. For Aadhaar enrolment, anyone who is 18 years of age or older, residents and non-residents (as long as they have proof of address in India), must utilize the recently introduced Form 1. It’s interesting to note that people in this group can update their Aadhaar data using the same Form 1.

Age Declaration And Documentary Proof

The Aadhaar card will only display the stated/approximate birth year if an individual’s age is declared or approximated (without documentation verification of birth date), per the revised form. To print the entire date of birth on the Aadhaar card, documentation must be shown.

Updates and document verification for Aadhaar enrollment can be completed by the Head of Family (HoF) or through other means. The HoF must sign Form 1 and provide their Aadhaar data. NRIs must furthermore have an Aadhaar email address. As stated in the instructions for Form 1, no SMS or text message would be issued to an NRI’s non-Indian cell number.
