Aadhaar laws are changed by the government, and supporting paperwork must be updated at least every 10 years.


New Delhi: A new statement from the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology states that in order to prevent Aadhaar fraud, the government is urging users to update their Aadhaar card information once every ten years.

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, to ensure continued accuracy of their information in the Central Identities Data Repository (CIDR),” states the notification dated November 9. 

“Such folks who had their Aadhaar made “10” years ago and have never updated after that in these years, such Aadhaar number holders are requested to get the documents updated,” reads a PIB news release from October 11, 2022.
