Now UIDAI Will Allow Aadhaar Users to Pull Up Data Update History

By June 7th, 2018 AT 7:06 PM

The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has launched a new feature using which Aadhaar holders will be able to pull up their Aadhaar information update history and use it for official purposes when demanded by an authority. The CEO of UIDAI Dr Ajay Bhushan Pandey said “This is yet another innovative and useful facility through which people can now obtain their own Aadhaar update history from the UIDAI’s website and can use it in support of their assertion of address, etc. We have launched its Beta version.”

He further added “To utilise this facility, the Aadhaar holder would have to go to the UIDAI website www.uidai.gov.in and click on Aadhaar Update History. A page will open where he will fill the Aadhaar number or Virtual ID (VID) and the security captcha. Then he will receive an OTP. After he enters OTP, he would be able to see his own Aadhaar Update History which can be printed for uses as required,”

According to the officials, the update history on the Aadhaar card is an essential record to keep. This information which users can access online after being availed by UIDAI will contain changes in name, address etc. which have been made to the holder’s card since the date of its generation. The changes will also be ordered date wise.

UIDAI CEO said “Providing Aadhaar update history will bring in more trust and further empower people because they can now use their update history to the authorities while applying for jobs, school admissions, various services or benefits, etc., because in most such cases they are usually asked to provide their address for the last two or three years.”

It was his opinion that “Aadhaar has emerged not only as a unique identity number but also as the most trusted ID that can be verified online and offline anytime, anywhere.”

The CEO highlighted that the history of an update on Aadhaar would be a key piece of document which is required by a lot of authorities. Since, while applying for a job or passport, people are asked about their two or three years previous address. This tool is going to help Aadhaar holders provide the required information with legitimacy.

Thats good but UIDAI must ensure that this update history remains private & confidential .. only accessible via appropriate permissions.
