A resident gets an authentication using OTP on his/her registered mobile number.
To complete the update process, resident needs to upload the supporting POA documents, which will be verified against requested data at a later stage at UIDAI’s Update back-office by a Verifier. The resident needs to have mobile number registered with Aadhaar for using this service.
However, one must note that, if you are using self service update portal, then you must have your mobile number registered. If not registered, then you can do so by visiting nearest Permanent Enrolment centre with Supporting Documents.
