A fee of ₹50 will continue to be levied for updates to Aadhaar made at post offices and other offline facilities. To encourage Aadhaar holders to revalidate documents that prove their identity and address, UIDAI is urging them to do so.

According to a recent announcement by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), Indian residents can avail of free updates to their Aadhaar details for a period of three months until June 14. The myAadhaar portal can be used to access this service. However, it should be noted that physical update centers, such as post offices, will still charge a fee of ₹50 for updating Aadhaar details, as per the UIDAI’s press statement.
The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has stated that according to the Aadhaar Enrolment and Update Regulations of 2016, Aadhaar holders are required to update their supporting documents, including proof of identity (POI) and proof of address (POA), at least once after completion of every 10 years from the date of enrolment for Aadhaar. This is to ensure the accuracy of their information on Aadhaar. The UIDAI has encouraged residents to revalidate their proof of identity and address documents, especially if they have not done so since their Aadhaar was issued.
This year, the UIDAI has announced plans to improve its biometric technology in order to combat the use of fake credentials. Through the use of artificial intelligence, it will be able to determine the “liveness” of a fingerprint, thereby reducing the possibility of fraud. Additionally, the organization will reintroduce the capability to update the Aadhaar address of family members if the “Head of Family” has already updated their address.
As per the data available on its website, the UIDAI has exceeded its budgeted expenditure for the financial year 2022-23. The authority responsible for issuing Aadhaar has spent a total of ₹1,325.41 crore as of February 2023, which is higher than the budgeted estimate of ₹1,110 crore.
