How to Update Photo in Aadhar Card Online

Aadhaar photo needs to be updated every 10 years, here is how to do it


The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) regularly reminds citizens to update their Aadhaar card details to ensure the accuracy of their data and a hassle-free authentication process. It is especially important to update biometric details such as photographs for children who were under 5 or 15 years old at the time of enrollment.

As per UIDAI guidelines, Aadhaar photo must be updated along with other biometric information:

- If a child was under 5 years old at the time of initial enrollment, they should be re-enrolled when they turn 5 years old and provide all biometric data.

- If a child was between 5 and 15 years old at the time of enrollment, they should furnish all the biometrics for updates when they turn 15 years old.

- For residents over 15 years old at the time of enrollment, it is recommended to update their biometric data every 10 years.

- UIDAI may also notify residents whose biometrics are below a certain quality threshold to update their biometrics.

So, if you wish to update your Aadhaar card and change the photo that was taken years ago, here is a step-by-step guide. However, before updating, please note that UIDAI only allows online updates for addresses on Aadhaar card. For other details such as name, date of birth, photo, and more, you will need to visit an Aadhaar enrollment centre for biometric authentication.
