Aadhaar e-KYC validation: UIDAI urges citizens to do it quickly
Now you can update your date of birth (DoB) in Aadhaar records online through 9 simple steps

The government has made the Aadhaar card mandatory for almost everything. Lots of direct cash transfer programmes of central government such as LPG Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT), Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana (PMJJBY), Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana (PMSBY), Atal Pension Yojana (APY), and Micro Units Development & Refinance Agency Bank (MUDRA) loans are available only if Aadhaar is seeded with the bank account.

Aadhaar cardholders can use the Aadhaar paperless offline e-KYC (which is basically a four-digit code generated on a mobile phone or computer with the help of a link stated below) for offline verification of their identification, which is a secure and shareable document.

Unless and until one verifies his/her identity (e-KYC) Aadhaar will not work fully in all places.

A citizen has to either visit a UIDAI centre or send his/her four-digit share code to the authorities by courier or post.
