UIDAI: In this way, you can change your photo on your Aadhar card, click here to know step by step process!


One of the most important identity proof documents for Indian citizens is the Aadhar card. Unique Identification Authority of India issues 12 digit Personal Identification Number on behalf of the Government of India. This is necessary for claiming government benefits, completing applications for schools or universities, and performing other official functions as it contains demographic and biometric information on the cardholder.

Even though all Aadhaar Unique Identification Numbers are permanent, the card needs to be updated frequently with new information. Time and again people need to change their home location, phone number, and even photo.

Therefore, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) allows citizens to modify any information on their Aadhar card by visiting the official website of UIDAI. If you wish, you can visit the Aadhaar Enrollment Center / Aadhaar Seva Kendra to update your Aadhaar photo with the latest version. Changes can also be made online, although doing so requires a trip to the nearest center.
