The rules regarding updation of date of birth have been further tightened. As mentioned above, date of birth can be updated only once in the Aadhaar card. In addition to that, the change in date of birth will be allowed to the maximum range of plus or minus three years of the date of birth recorded during Aadhaar enrolment.

Similarly, an individual submitting proof of date of birth at the time of enrolment will be recorded as verified in the UIDAI's records. However, in case the individual does not have documentary proof for date of birth at the time of enrolment, then the date of birth with the UIDAI will be recorded as declared or approximate.

In future, if the said individual wishes to update his/her date of birth, then he will have to provide documentary proof of his/her date of birth.

Update request from individual for change in date of birth from 'declared/approximate' to 'verified' will be allowed only once. This can only be done upon the submission of relevant documentary proof. This change is allowed irrespective of range/limit of change.

Individuals whose date of birth is already recorded UIDAI as 'verified' will not be allowed to change their date of birth.
