New Delhi: The Aadhaar Card has become one of India’s most vital identification documents. An Aadhar card, unlike its counterparts like the voter ID card, the PAN card, and others, serves several purposes.
It serves as proof of identity for an Indian citizen, containing information such as his or her date of birth, residence, and other personal information. Aadhar cards can also be linked to one’s phone number, bank account, and other information in order to do numerous official tasks. Given the significance of Aadhar, it is vital for an individual to double-check that all of the information on the card is valid. If this is not the case, the individual must update them as quickly as feasible.
The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) issues the Aadhaar card, which is a one-of-a-kind document. The card contains biometric credentials such as the person’s fingerprints and iris, as well as standard identity document information such as name, date of birth, gender, and address.
Currently, the government allows a person to modify his or her demographic and biometric information.
Name, residence, date of birth/age, gender, mobile number, email address, relationship status, and consent to share information are among the demographic parameters. According to the UIDAI website, biometric information such as iris, fingerprints, and facial pictures can be changed.
