Renewing Your Aadhaar Card

Renewing Your Aadhaar Card

Your 12 digit Aadhaar number will never change, and will stay with you through however many changes of name and address you go through in a lifetime. If you lose your Aadhaar card, you can easily request a replacement by logging into the website and following the options to request a duplicate card. If you change your name or gender, or if mistakes are made when producing your card, you can ask the website to send a special PIN number to the mobile number you have registered. If you wish to change your name or surname listed on the Aadhaar card, you will have to upload documentation proving your change of name. Parents can apply to change names listed for children.
