The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has encouraged Aadhaar card holders to update their biometric records every ten years. According to a report, officials have said that the government body will force people to update their facial and fingerprint scans connected to their Aadhaar card over time. Currently, children aged below five years are required to update their biometrics.

According to official sources, the UIDAI will encourage people to voluntarily update their biometrics and demographics data once in ten years. This might have forced people to update their Aadhaar over time. Aadhaar card holders aged above the age of 70 will not be prompted by the government body.

Aadhaar''s custodian accused of enrolling a minor percentage of people in Meghalaya, Nagaland, and Ladakh has reported enrolling nearly all individuals. Due to the NRC (National Register of Citizens), Aadhaar enrolment began late in Meghalaya, according to a report, which states that remote areas are left to be covered in Nagaland and Ladakh.

The total fresh enrolment for August was only 24.2 lakh, according to the report. Aadhaar''s saturation among adult residents is now near universal, and the total saturation rate is 93.565 percent.

Biometrics are not collected for the Aadhaar enrolment of five children. Instead, the UIDAI enrols younger children using a facial scan and biometric authentication of the parent or guardian. However, children aged between five and 15 years are required to furnish their biometrics at an Aadhaar Seva Kendra.
