New Delhi, Nov 30

The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), which is executing the "Aadhaar" scheme pan-India, Friday launched a new facility to enable people update their demographic profile by post or by way of an online application.

The authority said in a statement that update requests can be submitted online through the self-service update portal, which will accept requests for changes in name, gender, date of birth, address and mobile number.

This apart, residents can send their request for update on these five fields by post to any of the six regional offices of UIDAI based on the local language in which they were enrolled, the statement added.

Earlier, the update option was available at the enrolment or update centres alone.

"UIDAI recognises the need for facilitating residents to update their demographic and biometric information up-to-date using multiple channels. The facility is one such service made available for the convenience of residents," the statement said.

The new facility was launched by UIDAI Chairman Nandan Nilekani, which allows residents to log on to www.uidai.gov.in and submit requests along with relevant documents. this portal also enables the residents to check the status of their update requests.

    The Aadhaar project is itself so powerful that it has attracted so many people toward it and this is the reason why the response from the people of the country is exceeding the expected value of its regulatory body, the UIDAI. This is a good scheme and will surely curb the cases of corruption in the entire system. We should participate in these types of government programs as they all are beneficial to us at the end.
