Change Aadhaar Card Details After Marriage
Aadhaar is a 12-digit unique identification number that is issued to all Indian residents based on their biometric and demographic data. UIDAI is mandated to issue an easily verifiable 12 digit random number as Unique Identity – Aadhaar to all Residents of India.
Right now Aadhaar has become very important for the citizens of India as it is required to available many services.
When people get married, most of the time women face a need to change their names or surnames after marriages on their husband’s surname.
With this, they also have to change their names or surnames in many of their documents or identity cards. Such is also applicable for the Aadhaar Card and as per the present scenario, one must have up to date information on Aadhaar Card.
After the wedding, a woman would want to change her surname or address after the wedding for her Aadhaar Card. So she has to register the change on the Aadhaar Card. Men, on the other hand, would be shifting to newer homes after getting married or might switch jobs, which might result in their addresses changed.
This article will guide you on how to change Aadhaar card details after marriage. This is helpful for married women who generally change their surnames after marriage.
So how do you make these changes in the Aadhaar Card?
It’s pretty easy, though, as there are two ways by which you can alter the details of your aadhaar card like surname or address in your aadhaar card.
There are three channels or ways for changing the details of aadhaar card:
- Online (This is done over the internet) and by yourself.
- Offline (In this mode or channel you have to send physical documents via post).
- Offline by Visting An Aadhaar Update Center
I will be covering the first two channels, so rest assured and follow the tutorial carefully. If you have any questions regarding anything; you can ask them in the comments section and I’ll clarify your queries.
Let’s cover the first channel.
1). How to Change AADHAAR CARD details Online?
This method or mode lets you change or modify your information online; the benefit of this mode is you can follow up this method from anywhere and anytime.
You can change the following details in Aadhaar Card via the online channel method:
Name Gender Date of Birth
Update: Now you can only change your address online. For any other change you will have to visit a near by Aadhaar Update Center.
There are some few things to keep in mind before applying for aadhaar card details change via the online mode:
- Your Registered Mobile Number is mandatory in the online process. If you don’t have your up to date mobile number linked, you can follow up on this process.
- You need to submit documents for the change of –
Name, Date of Birthand Address. However, Change in Gender and E-mail ID do not require any document.
- You have to fill details in both – English and Regional/Local language(Eg. Hindi, Oriya, Bengali, etc.)
- Aadhaar Card Details aren’t changed instantly. They get changed after Verification and Validation by the authority.
Important: Do note that you will be required to submit documents as proof of the name change, hence as of now it seems marriage certificate is not accepted for a name change for married women. However I think Marriage Certificate Issued by the Government is still valid but still, some people are reporting the failure of uploading such.
Hence I advise this alternative; With a marriage certificate, first – get the name changed in your PAN Card, Bank Account, Savings Account Passbook, and any other document or identity card.
Post that this will be used to first verify the name change and the address change.
Normally you can change the details like the name, gender, date of birth and address after you get married.
Hence PAN Card and Savings account passbook will do the job for verification.
So before moving on and taking the online route/channel, make sure you have these first. Again if you have any doubts, raise your questions in the comments section.
