How can I authenticate Aadhaar Id of a person? There are multiple online services provided by MP SRDH portal which take input from the user and uniquely verify the resident and his/her Aadhaar ID using the Central Identities Data Repository (CIDR). The modes of authentication are:
Biometric authentication: Require UID and the biometric (finger print or iris scan) of the resident for authentication.
Demographic authentication:Require UID and demographic information (Name/Mobile No. /Email address) of the resident.
OTP authentication:On entry of UID, a one-time password (OTP) is sent to the mobile number registered with UIDAI to identify the resident.
eKYC:UIDAI offers the e-KYC service, which enables a resident having an Aadhaar number to share their demographic information and photograph with a UIDAI partner organization in an online, secure, auditable manner with the residents consent. The consent by the resident can be given via a Biometric authentication or OTP authentication.
DBT seeding data viewer (DSDV):department user can view the demographic details and photograph available in UIDAI database (CIDR) by entering UID / EID of the beneficiary. The user will match the above demographic details with those available in the service provider database.
What fields can I update through Self Service Update Portal (SSUP)? Using the online SSUP portal (https://ssup.uidai.gov.in/web/guest/ssup-home) Name, gender, Date of Birth, address, mobile number and email can be updated.
How can I get my mobile number registered against my Aadhaar? You need to visit the nearest enrollment center to update your mobile number. No additional documents are required.
What is Aadhaar Seeding? Aadhaar seeding is a process by which UIDs of residents are included in the service delivery database of service providers for enabling Aadhaar based authentication during service delivery.
