Aadhaar card, the 12-digit identification number that is unique to every enrolled resident in India, can be updated online for free until June 14, according to the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) website. Uploading Proof of Identity (PoI) and Proof of Address (PoA) papers is required to update Aadhaar documents online, which usually costs ₹ 50 at physical Aadhaar locations. This method allows users to revalidate their demographic information, particularly if their Aadhaar card was issued more than ten years ago. However, updating biometric details, including iris, fingerprints and photographs, requires a fee of ₹ 100 and a visit to the nearest Aadhaar centre.

Most people are not happy with the photograph on their Aadhaar card. This can be because their pictures were taken a long time ago. Here are a few simple steps by which people can change their pictures.

  • Go to the official website of UIDAI and download the Aadhaar enrollment form
  • Take a printout and fill out all the necessary details
  • Go to your nearest Aadhaar Enrolment Centre or Aadhaar Sewa Kendra and submit the Aadhaar enrolment form to an Aadhaar executive
  • Provide your biometric information
  • The executive will then click your picture at the centre itself
  • You will be required to pay a fee of ₹ 100 to the centre for updating your details
  • You will receive an acknowledgement slip that includes the URN which can be used to track the status of the card
  • After a few days, when your updated Aadhaar card is ready, you can download it from the UIDAI website under ‘My Aadhaar’
  • Click on ‘Download Aadhaar’, enter the required details and download the updated e-Aadhaar card in a PDF
  • Finally, take a printout of the Aadhaar card

Notably, no documents are required to change the photo on the Aadhaar card. You do not submit any photographs at the enrollment centre. Typically, it takes up to 30 days for information to be updated on the Aadhaar card. However, it might sometimes take up to 90 days.
