The authority that manages Aadhaar cards – Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) – announced an important update. They made the announcement on Twitter through series of posts.


The tweet said that UIDAI’s Aadhaar card centers are going to re-start their services in many states. Apart from that, people can now also link their Ration Cards to their Aadhaar cards sitting at their homes.

Below are the details of the announcements made by UIDAI:  

Appointment Bookings

Anyone who wants some kind of change in his/her Aadhaar Card will first have to make an appointment. For this, one can take an appointment at https://appointments.uidai.gov.in/ or via the M-Aadhaar app.

In addition, citizens should also follow social distancing once they are given an appointment.

Only those states or districts where the new guidelines released in Lockdown 4.0 will allow Aadhaar card centers to re-open.

Linking Aadhaar Card to Ration Card

The deadline for linking Aadhaar card to the ration card has been postponed to September 30, 2020. According to the Central Food Ministry, food will be provided to ration card holders even if their ration cards are not attached to their Aadhaar cards.
