Aadhaar Card Free Document Update Deadline Gets 3 Months Extension– Check New Date And How To Apply | Personal Finance News


New Delhi: Aadhaar issuing body Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has announced another round of deadline extension for free updation of Aadhaar Card documents. Now, Aadhaar Card documents can be updated for free on mAadhaar portal till 14 March 2024. The latest deadline extension by three more months comes against the previous deadline of September 14.

“In order to encourage more residents to update their document in Aadhaar, it was decided to provide the provision to update their document in Aadhaar through myAadhaar portal free of cost up to 14.12.2023. Based on the positive response from the residents, it is decided to extend the facility for 3 more months i.e. from 15.12.2023 to 14.03.2024. Accordingly, the facility for document update shall continue to be free of cost through myAadhaar portal at https://myaadhaar.uidai.gov.in/ up to 14.03.2024,” UIDAI said in an office memorandum.

The free service is being offered only on the myAadhaar portal. As before, it will still cost Rs 50 to use the service at physical Aadhaar centres. The UIDAI has been pushing residents to upload Proof of Identity and Proof of Address (PoI/PoA) documents to revalidate their demographic facts, especially if Aadhaar was granted 10 years back and never got updated. This will increase the success rate of authentication and contribute to better service delivery and increased convenience of living.


Residents have two options if they need to update their demographic information (Name, Date of Birth, Address, etc.): they can use the standard online update service or go to the local Aadhar centre. In these situations, standard fees will be charged.
