New Delhi: Aadhaar card is one of the most important identity proof documents in the country. In case there is an error or change in your details, you can always update your details in Aadhaar. You can update Demographic details (Name, Address, DoB, Gender, Mobile Number, Email) as well as Biometrics (Finger Prints, Iris & Photograph) in Aadhaar.
Note that for updation in Aadhaar, either Demographic or Biometric, you have to pay Rs 50 (including taxes) to the service provider each time you get your details updated.
There are 2 different ways you can get your details updated:-
1. By Visiting Permanent Enrolment centre: Search nearest enrolment centre by clicking on “Locate Enrolment Center” on uidai.gov.in.
2. Online using Self Service Update Portal (SSUP): Click “Update Your Address Online” on uidai.gov.in.
Remember that if you are using online Self Service Update Portal (SSUP) for updation, your mobile number should be registered with Aadhaar otherwise you can visit nearest Permanent Enrolment centre with Supporting documents. It takes upto 90 days for updation in Aadhaar after the request.
If you have recently updated one’s 12-digit unique identity number, then you have three ways to check the Aadhaar card update status. You can call at 1947 or send an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also log in at the direct link — resident.uidai.gov.in/check-aadhaar to check the update status. The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) informed about these three ways through a tweet from its official twitter handle.
Informing about the three ways through which one can check Aadhaar card status update the UIDAI tweeted, “Have you updated your Aadhaar recently? Call 1947 or email at email@example.com to know the status of your update request. Keep your acknowledgment slip or URN handy to get the details. You can also check the status online from https://resident.uidai.gov.in/check-aadhaar.”
In either of the three ways to check the Aadhaar update status, you will have to keep the acknowledgment slip or 14-digit URN number ready with you. If you call at 1947, you will have to give the URN number to the Aadhaar executive. If you choose the email option to check status, you will have to send details of the acknowledgment slip and URN number.

The EID is displayed on the top of your enrolment/update acknowledgment slip and contains 14 digit enrolment number (1234/12345/12345) and the 14 digit date and time (dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm:ss) of enrolment. These 28 digits together form your Enrolment ID (EID),” says UIDAI.
