The Govt of Kerala has issued a notice permitting the online renewal of Aadhaar Cards for free until 14th June, 2023.
Identity and address documents can be updated through the website myaadhaar.uidai.gov.in after logging in with the Aadhaar number. Only individuals whose mobile numbers are linked with Aadhaar can use the online system.
