UIDAI says the Aadhaar photo needs to be updated every 10 years, here is how Can Do it. and The Process To update the photo on an Aadhaar card
UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India)
The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) suggests citizens to update their Aadhaar card information on a regular basis to maintain the correctness of their data and an easy verification process. It is especially important to update biometric information, such as pictures, for children who were under the age of 5 or 15 at the time of registration.
Also, according to UIDAI rules, an Aadhaar photo update or other biometric information is required: – If a kid was under 5 years old at the time of first registration, they should be re-enrolled when they become 5 years old and give all biometric data.
It is advised that people above the age of 15 at the date of registration update their biometric data every ten years.
Accidents or issues that cause biometric exceptions may also demand an update.
People can apply for biometric updates when Aadhaar authentication becomes more common due to authentication issues caused by faulty or poor-quality biometric capture at the time of enrollment.
Persons whose biometrics fall below a specific quality standard may also be notified by UIDAI to update their biometrics.
So, if you want to update your Aadhaar card and replace the photo from years ago, here is a step-by-step procedure. However, please keep in mind that UIDAI only enables online changes for addresses on Aadhaar cards. You will need to attend an Aadhaar enrollment centre for biometric authentication for other details such as name, date of birth, photo, and more.
