Aadhaar updates: Beware of overcharging by computer centres and Common Service Centres

November 11, 2020

Sir,

Recently, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has introduced a new Self-Service Update Portal (SSUP) wherein residents can themselves update their demographic details such as Name, Address, DoB, Gender, etc., from their home computer or from any computer centre. 

However, some computer centres, Common Service Centres (CSCs) and cyber cafes are taking undue advantage of this facility and overcharging the residents. Residents have complained at the Aadhaar Seva Kendras (ASKs) that some of them are charging up to Rs. 800 – Rs.1000 for the updates. 

Some of them are also providing fake certificates of Gazetted Officers and charging up to Rs. 5,000 per certificate, at times even when the certificate is not required. 

Residents of Mysuru are advised not to go to such centres as they are not even sparing the poor people and looting their customers.

The details of charges are given below for the information of the residents:

Appointment:  Free of charge. Nowadays appointment is not required as there is not much crowd at the Aadhaar Seva Kendras. The ASKs are open on all 7 days of the week.

New Enrolment:  Free of charge.
