Do you want to know how to update aadhaar card details online? Yes – It’s possible. You can easily update your details online without any offline documentation and then download your new aadhaar card online and start using it.

Recently, I wanted to change my address details in my aadhaar card and I completed the whole process online by visiting the website of UIDAI. It was just a few minutes task and very easy. I have also created an online video tutorial with all the steps. Below is the video if you want to refer to it.

8 step process to update your aadhaar card details online

  1. Go to https://ssup.uidai.gov.in/update
  2. Enter your aadhaar card number and text verification code to generate the OTP
  3. Enter your OTP and then on the next screen choose the details you want to change
  4. Enter the details which you want to change and then proceed to upload the documents
  5. Choose the supporting document which you want to upload. Make sure the document is self attested and signed by you and scanned back.
  6. Note down the UTR number which can be used later to check the status

How to Check the status of your Aadhaar change ?

Once you have submitted the change request, you will get a UTR (Unique request number), which can be used later to check the status of the change. Here is how you check the status later

  • Visit https://ssup.uidai.gov.in/check-status
  • Enter your Aadhaar card number and the UTR number (without slashes)
  • You will get the status. It might be awaiting approval or might have approved already in which case you can then download your new aadhaar cared online and start using it

  • Choose the option to enter your aadhaar card and enter all details
  • Generate the OTP and enter that to proceed
  • A PDF will get downloaded which can be opened by entered your pin code as the passport
  • You can now start using this new aadhaar card by taking a color Xerox

Cases where you might want to change the aadhaar details

  • Your address might have changed after your aadhaar card was made
  • Incase of name change after marriage in case of female
  • Your mobile number or email id is changed
  • You have changed your name or your name was wrongly captured at the time when you applied for aadhaar card
  • By mistake your gender or date of birth was wrongly captured

I hope this tutorial was clear and easy for you to follow. The process to update aadhaar card details just takes 5 min of your time. Try it and let me know if it worked for you or not. Also do not forget to share this article with your friends circle; it would be very useful for them.

    Dear Manishji

    How to generate OTP when my registered mobile number is blocked? And I want to update mobile number.

    1. You cant.

      Now you need to change details using offline method !

  4. Mukhil says:

    Hi Manish,

    Very informative article.
    What does it mean If the status says “request has been processed” , I haven’t received any sms yet though :/

    1. Why dont you check the status online .

      1. Mukhil says:

        Thanks for the reply, i did check, ” your request has been processed” is the status. Apparently that means my aadhar is ready and i can download it. I had to call the helpline to clarify that ( they gave me the date and time to go along with the URN) and now i have my EAadhar 🙂

        1. Great to know that. You will get the physical copy of adhaar card in few weeks (I got mine the same way) . For now you can use the eversion !


  5. Girish says:

    Is it safe to upload the bank statement , as it contains the complete account details??

    1. Yes, its safe if its govt website

  6. Abutahaaziz says:

    Respected sir. Can anybody help me to get details of aadhar card’s—- Earlier name and address used to register the applicant of the aadhaar number. If applicant has updated the old details to newer one.

  7. Jalpesh says:

    Hi Manish,
    I tried updating the address in the aadhaar card of my mother using the steps provided here.
    Bank statement attested by my mother was uploaded as supporting document.
    But the request got rejected with the comments that
    Scanned copy uploaded is not of original document.
    What could be the reason for this? I can send the soft copy of bank statement to you for your view if required.

    1. Soft copy means what ? You should scan the colored statemnt which comes each month, with your mom sign.

    Thanks, Good Information.

  21. AJIT says:

    Dear Madam/Sir,

    The whole process of updation hinges around registered mobile number or the original enrollment letter. In 2011/12 when enrollment were done no importance of entering data of mobile number was stressed nor preservation of enrollment letter (After receipt of aadhar card it was discarded by me). Hence there is population like me who today I do not have neither registered mobile number nor the enrollment letter.

    This difficulty was posted on the site ‘My goverment” and suggested to run a ad campaign highlighting the importance of both so others dont suffer the same fate. UDAI authorities sent me a offline form to update my mobile number which regd posted to given address. I waited for two months nothing happened and ultimately I again spent five hours in que to update my details.

    This my story.

  24. Nadeem says:

    My son is a student and already has a Aadhaar Card. Recently he has started using prescription spectacles. As his “look” has changed we felt that his photograph in the card should be changed, but there is no provision to change the photo on the UIDAI website.

    Your views, on this issue which will be faced by every growing child?

    1. I dont have answer to this.

    2. krishna says:

      Now it has such option.

  25. azam says:

    how to update the mobile number

  26. Sudeeshbabu says:

    How to update the mobile number for the first time

    1. Dinesh says:

      You can do by sending them a post or reach nearest aadhar update center in person (every person has to go to update their own number in aadhaar for fingerprint verification)

    2. You need to do it offline

  27. muthu says:

    Please tell us anybody successfully updated?

    I have sent address change request, but even after 5 months the status still “under process”

    1. Hi Muthu

      Yes, it has successfully worked for me just now. I wrote the article 3-4 days back and right now when I checked the status , it told me

      Update Status
      The status of the URN no. 00000XXXXXXXX Your request has been processed.

      I downloaded my Aadhaar right now and I can see that the address is updated in that 🙂

  28. Gopal reddy naini says:

    I haven’t registered my cell or email with Adhar. Now I need to correct my name.How do I proceed?

    1. In that case you will have to do it offline

  29. tushar says:

    i have sent request for updation online 3 weeks back, still have no updates, not even single mail for updating confirmation

    1. Hi Tushar

      I just checked mine and for me its already updated (3-4 days) . You will not get any email regarding this. You will have to check the status online and then download the aadhaar card. Its already covered in the article


  30. sujipanicker says:

    how does one update new mobile number. OTP will be sent to the old number and i dont have any acess to the old number.

    1. Sumit says:

      The online process to change the mobile number is not supported. You need to visit the nearest Aadhar Centre in your area for the necessary modification.

      1. Arul says:

        There is no need to visit any update center. There is list of documents accepted. Attach any one proof (self attested) and your mobile no and address will be updated. I did it successful for self. But, it was not accepted for my wife as I could not attach a proper document for my wife.

        Find below the documents required, address etc. Pl. do it. It will happen. You will get SMS updates also.

    2. It has to be done offline only

  31. Hemanth says:

    Hi Manish,

    Thanks a lot for the post. But, how can I get a new physical aadhar card after address is changed??

    Because, the e-aadhar card that we download from the website is not accepted.

    Here is my experience with e-aadhar card. I downloaded e-aadhar card and took the print out of it to get a new SIM card connection. They rejected it saying its e-aadhar. Again, I have to take a xerox of my physical aadhar card for them to accept it.

    1. Arul says:

      I downloaded, printed on photographic paper, cut it, laminate it and you are ready to go…

      1. Hemanth says:

        Ok. Are you sure it will work?

        have u tried it anywhere?

        1. Arul says:

          Absolutely. It works without any problem. I got my voter ID based on it. It will cost you some Rs 50 for print + 20 for lamination. You need to go to a digital studio with the E-Aadhar PDF in a pen drive. Print it there and laminate it in a xerox shop….

          1. Hemanth says:

            Thanks for the info Arul. Can you let me know if there is e-aadhar anywhere on the card that you took print out and laminated ?

            1. arul says:

              There is no mention of E-aadhar in the card. The ‘E-aadhar’ is mentioned in the top of the letter. The e-aadhar letter has a nice portion with photo, address etc, with clear outline (marked with a dotted line where you have to cut). It is designed to be cut (front and back) and laminated. It is 100 % original. Go head. It can be done

          2. Hemanth says:

            I mean word ‘e-aadhar’ on the one which you downloaded

    2. Hemanth

      If you take the color xerox even then its not allowed anywhere ?

      1. Hemanth says:

        I don’t think that is because of color or black and white. When we download aadhar card online, at the top it is mentioned as e-aadhar. that’s why they didn’t accept it in my case.

        1. Arul says:

          I tried colour printing. Did not come out well. The photo and some emblem did not print so well. But, it was perfect when printed on a photographic printer using photographic paper. Then I cut it, laminated the front and back together. The card looks perfect.

          1. Great to know that

          2. Parag says:

            This is a great info Arul. I was looking for exactly same info as I didn’t get my Adhar card delivered since 2 years now. Thanks.

        2. ok , I am not sure in that case.

  32. Renga says:

    Can some one tell me the process to get new AADHAR Card? I don’t have one yet.
