Documents Required for Aadhaar Card Registration

Here are the required documents you need while registering for Aadhar Card. For AADHAAR card change and update requests, the UIDAI accepts several Identity proof and Address proof and Date of Birth proof documents.

Your name must be clearly mentioned below the signatures or thumbprint section when you are self attesting the document for update.
