Informing about this, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) tweeted, “You can easily update demographic details (name, date of birth, gender, address) online and authenticate via OTP received by SMS. You will be charged Rs. 50 for the mobile update, with or without other demographics update.” According to the official website of UIDAI, a person is only allowed to change their name on the Aadhar card twice.
