Incorrect Date of Birth mentioned in your Aadhaar Card can create numerous problems when you use it for identification. Some of the common problems reported on having an incorrect date of birth are unsuccessful in linking Aadhaar with PAN and EPF due to the date of birth mismatch.
Suppose if you have noticed that your date of birth in your Aadhaar is incorrectly mentioned then you can submit an update request. But before submitting an update request for DOB, you should keep in mind that the date of birth cannot be updated again and again, as the UIDAI has set a limit on it that is it can be updated only once in a lifetime. So you should act very wisely and update your correct and valid date of birth as present in your document.
There are several methods to get the date of birth corrected on your Aadhaar Card, but to correct your date of birth you need to furnish a supporting document that mentions the correct date of birth. Below is the list of the documents which can be used to update date of birth.
