It should be noted that while updating an Aadhar card online is free, updating documents at an actual Aadhaar center costs Rs 25.

Why is it crucial that Aadhaar data is updated at all times?

If someone hasn’t updated their Aadhaar card information in the previous ten years, UIDAI has been pleading with them to do so. This is being done to put an end to Aadhaar-related scams.

“Please update your Aadhaar for continued accuracy of demographic information,” the UIDAI requested on their website. Among the data types that can be updated online are name, address, phone number, email address, gender, and date of birth. Only at actual Aadhaar centers are you able to update your photo, iris, or other biometric information.
