Unique Identification Authority of India issues Aadhar Card to every Indian. Nowadays, it has become mandatory to apply for Aadhar card. UIDAI provides a unique 12 digits Aadhar number.
The card contains individual details like Photo, Name, Date of Birth, and Address. Did you receive your Aadhar Card? Are the individual details printed on the card incorrect?
There could be typo errors or any other mistakes on the card which could raise problems for you while submitting the card for any purpose. The Aadhar card now gets accepted as an ID proof for different purposes.
So, you won’t like to get the submitted ID proof rejected for any errors in the card. If your name is printed incorrectly on the card, get it changed online by self.
