New Delhi: Aadhaar is one of the most crucial documents for Indian residents. The 12-digit identity card is required to receive several services offered by public and private organizations. Indian residents are required to share their Aadhaar card details to avail the benefits of various government programs. And that’s why cardholders are required to keep their contact information up to date.
Since many had asked for Aadhaar cards years ago, the photo on the document does not really match your current appearance. So, if you want to change the photo on the Aadhaar card, here is a good news. The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) allows Aadhaar cardholders to change their details on the document.
You can edit details such as phone number, address, email id, photo and name among others using the facilities of UIDAI. Cardholders can request some changes on the official UIDAI website.
