You can update your demographic information, such as your name, date of birth, gender, address and language, on your Aadhaar card through the Self Service Update Portal (SSUP). SSUP is an online platform for Aadhar card users which allows them to correct or change their address without going to the office. As per the information provided by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), Aadhaar card holders will now be able to update more than one detail at a time.
UIDAI wrote on Twitter, “Update your demographic details online through SSUP” and further shared the link of the portal. It is also important to note that though more than one detail can be updated at a time, a fee of Rs 50 will be charged per request.
Since UIDAI allows you to modify your demographic information, it does not mean that you can change them at your leisure. Once in a lifetime, an Aadhaar holder can update his/her Date of Birth (DoB) (change in date of birth is updated only for unverified DoB). When it comes to gender, change can be done once in life, whereas name change can be done twice. Also Read: Blue Aadhar Card: Who Gets It And How To Apply For It? know here
