As per the Aadhaar Enrolment and Update Regulations, 2016, individuals with an Aadhaar card must update their proof of identity and address documents upon completion of every ten years from the Aadhaar enrollment date. 

Accordingly, the UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India) has been urging people for an Aadhaar card update, i.e., an update of Proof of Identity (PoI) and Proof of Address (PoA) documents, if they have not done so in the previous ten years. Updating the Aadhaar card documents will help curb Aadhaar-related fraud and provide accurate demographic information.

The last date to update Aadhaar card for free is 14 March 2024 on the myAadhaar portal. After 14 March 2024, you will have to update your proof of identity and address documents for Aadhaar card by paying a fee. 

Initially, the UIDAI made this Aadhaar card document update facility free online till 14 December 2023 and later extended it till 14 March 2024 due to a positive response from the residents. Thus, the facility to update Aadhaar card documents will remain free online on the myAadhaar portal till 14 March 2024.
