This system effectively identifies and mitigates instances of fraud and ghost identities within the population.

If your Aadhaar card was issued more than 10 years ago and has not been updated since, UIDAI advises citizens to submit proof of identity (POI) and proof of address (POA) documents to re-validate their demographic information. This ensures improved service delivery and successful certification processes.
