In a previous news release, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) emphasised that it is pushing and encouraging residents to keep their documents up to date. Updating the papers in Aadhaar makes life easier, improves service delivery, and allows for precise authentication.
Over time, Aadhar has arguably evolved into the most significant kind of identification. Moreover, the number is utilised in numerous government programs and services. According to a UIDAI circular from August, those without an Aadhaar number or enrolment slip might not be eligible to get government subsidies and perks.
According to a notification dated 9 November 2022, “Aadhaar number holders may, on completion of every 10 years from the date of enrolment for Aadhaar, update their supporting documents in Aadhaar, at least once, by submitting Proof of Identity (POI) and Proof of Address (POA) documents as specified under Aadhaar Enrolment and Update Regulation 10 hereinabove, so as to ensure continued accuracy of their information in the Central Identities Data Repository (CIDR), in such manner as may be specified by the Authority from time to time.”
