A 12-digit unique identification number is now required for all official purposes. For everything from using government services to opening a bank account, applying for a driver’s licence, getting a mobile or internet connection, and applying for jobs, an Aadhaar number is a must-have as identification proof.
Your Aadhaar card has your name, birthdate, contact information, address, and—most critically—a 12-digit identifying number. Users are encouraged to frequently examine their Aadhaar data and submit amendments if any updates are required, according to the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI).
However, you can edit it as necessary. A mobile number cannot be updated online, so be aware of this. You must finish it by visiting the nearest Aadhaar centre.

Step 1: Go to the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) website.
