New Delhi: Aadhar card has become one of the most crucial identity documents for availing services offered by the government. A single mistake in the Aadhaar can devoid someone from receiving the benefits of certain state-backed schemes. Therefore, it’s important to keep your Aadhaar card updated.
In a bid to make it easier for anyone to make changes in their Aadhaar card, the UIDAI has partnered with the India Post Payments Bank (IPPB). As part of the partnership, resident Aadhar card holders can easily get their mobile numbers and others changes in the document at the ease and comfort of their homes.
In an official notification on microblogging site Twitter, the Ministry of Communications had informed citizens that Aadhar card holders can update mobile numbers in the document by requesting a visit of a postman at their homes. The ministry added that India Post Payments Bank has launched the service for updating the mobile number in Aadhar.
“By updating mobile number in Aadhaar, beneficiary identification can be facilitated for various services such as registering for government PDS/DBT schemes, getting ration under One Nation One Ration Card Scheme, KYC for new mobile SIM connections, updating demographic details online, accessing RTO services for driving licence, verifying income tax returns, and information on EPFO services,” the ministry said.
