NEW DELHI: The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has appealed to Aadhaar holders, who were issued the unique identity 10 years back and who have never updated their records, to revise their information in its database.
They can do so by uploading supportive documents (proof of identity and proof of address) either online through my Aadhaar portal or offline by visiting the nearest Aadhaar centre, the UIDAI said in statement.
During the past decade, Aadhaar number has emerged as a universally accepted proof of identity of residents in the contry. More than 1,100 Government schemes and programmes, including 319 run by the Central Government, use Aadhaar based identification for delivery of services. Besides, many financial institutions, like banks and NBFCs, use Aadhaar to authenticate and onboard customers seamlessly.
“It is in the interest of the residents to keep their Aadhaars updated with current proof of identity and proof of address,” said the UIDAI statement. It further said keeping the documents updated helps in easeof-living, better service delivery, and enables accurate authentication.
“UIDAI has always encouraged residents to keep their documents updated, and the Aadhaar (Enrolment and Update) (Tenth Amendment) Regulations 2022 notified on November 09, 2022 was another step in that direction,” it said.
The UIDAI urged the residents “to update their documents for continued accuracy of information in the Aadhaar database.
