How to check Aadhaar update history
In an innovative and useful facility, the Aadhaar holders can now not only check their update history online, but also download it and show it at places where it is needed. This will greatly benefit those who have changed their addresses a number times. Some services, like jobs or school admissions, ask for addresses of last two or three years. In such a case, this new service can be used as proof.
Even otherwise, one would like to know the changes in the data in one's Aadhaar database. According to Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) sources, the Aadhaar update history shows date-wise details of updates made in address, and other fields on the Aadhaar since its generation, reported PTI.
Steps to avail this facility:
- Aadhaar holders will have to go to the UIDAI website and click on Aadhaar update history.
- A section on the website will then open where the Aadhaar holder will need to fill the Aadhaar number or virtual ID and the security captcha.
- The person will then receive an OTP which will have to be feeded in a box displayed on the website to see the history.
