Residents will have to log into the myAadhaar portal and follow instruction to complete the process. The free service will be available from March 15 to June 14, 2023. People who choose to opt for getting the documents updated at physical Aadhaar centres will however have to pay a fee of Rs 50 as had been mandated earlier, the ministry of electronics &IT said in a release.
The decision by Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) is expected to benefit scores of residents who can avail of the facility at the tap of their smartphones.
It will enable revalidation of residents’ demographic details, especially if Aadhaar was issued to them a decade back and never got updated. This also helps in better service delivery while enhancing authentication success rate.
Nearly 1,200 government schemes and programmes, run by both the central and state governments, are using Aadhaar-based identification for delivery of services.
