Aadhaar is a 12-digit identification number issued by UIDAI to all citizens of India. As it has become the most vital document for availing any form of financial services, you must have your Aadhaar with you at all times. To avoid misplacing your Aadhaar, you can download an Aadhaar online by registering on the UIDAI mAadhaar app.

Anyone using a smartphone in India can download and use the mAadhaar app. However, only a few services, such as Locate Registration Center, Verify Aadhaar and Scan QR Code, will be available to residents without a registered Aadhaar mobile number.

However, all other Aadhaar services, including Aadhaar profile services listed under My Aadhaar, require a registered mobile number.

According to a recent tweet from UIDAI, “Update your demographic information such as name (only minor edits allowed, twice), gender (once), date of birth (once), and address ( no limits) online via #mAadhaarApp”.

Any demographic update will cost Rs 50 per request, and multiple details can be updated at once, according to the tweet.
