How To Fill Aadhar Card Correction Form Online/Offline
We assume that you have enrolled for the Aadhaar card and you have a unique number under your name. Not everyone is lucky when it comes to getting things right at one shot; I’ve been there, where I have had to go for the correction after a couple of weeks because of mistake in the Surname.
Everyone makes mistakes, which not something you should be crying about because UIDAI understands it. You can go for the correction the next day you have received the card physically.
So, what’s the process behind it? Not many people know multiple options they have when it comes to updating or correction. Lack of knowledge does get the best of them, and they end up spending more time doing unnecessary tasks.
