Aadhaar Card Update: For the betterment of the people, the Unique Identification Authority Of India (UIDAI) has recently introduced a new feature on its official portal. As per the new feature, people who have moved to a new residential place can change their address on their current Aadhaar identification by themselves easily on the portal. Not just that, they can update their new phone and do many other changes too. This self-service feature of the portal helps people in this direction.
The UIDAI said recently on its Twitter handle said that the new Aadhaar enrolment and Mandatory Biometric Update (MBU) would be provided free of charge. New Aadhaar registration is mandatory for children once they reach the age of five and again once they turn 15-years-old.
The biometric update can also be done with or without the demographic update. Note that demographic update is essentially all the data pertaining to the user’s name, date of birth, gender, address, mobile number, email address and language.
