The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) recently extended the deadline for updating Aadhaar card details, pushing it from June 14, 2024, to September 14, 2024. This extension aims to provide citizens with an extended period to ensure their biometric and demographic data remains current and accurate.

Under this update, individuals can modify various demographic details on their Aadhaar cards, including name, address, date of birth/age, gender, mobile number, email address, relationship status, and information sharing consent. However, online updates for Aadhaar do not cover biometric data like iris scans, fingerprints, and facial photographs. Also, changes to the date of birth are limited to one update with a range of plus or minus three years from the initially registered date. Similarly, gender details on the Aadhaar card are modifiable only once.
