The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has permitted the Common Service Centres that operate as banking correspondents (BCs), to provide Aadhaar updation facility. This permission has been granted by UIDAI to CSCs to make Aadhaar updation easier for citizens.
After the assent of UIDAI, around 20,000 CSCs will now be able to provide the Aadhaar updation service to citizens. The permission allows the Common Service Centre to only update demographic details such as name, address and date of birth.
The Common Service Centre is a Special Purpose Vehicle established by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology for accessible electronic delivery of services, including e-governance, to citizens in rural India.
