How to cancel Aadhaar update request online?

Hi friends, in this blog we are going to discuss about how to cancel Aadhaar update request online. We all know that Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) gives the facility of place online request for Aadhaar correction to Aadhaar card holders.


Why people need to cancel their Aadhaar update request:

When people go through the Aadhaar update process they have to make a payment of Rs. 50/-. But sometimes at the time of processing the payment it shows error. Sometimes the Aadhaar update payment failed due to internet connection or for any other connection. But they got the URN number on registered mobile.


In such conditions you don’t have the payment option again. If they go to place the update request again then it says that “similar request has placed already, you can make another request only after disposal of the first one”.


Then they have to cancel their request and place a new request. In the payment failed condition if the amount is deducted from the account then it will return within 3-7 days.


Many times people have placed Aadhaar update request successfully and their payment also made successfully. But there are some mistakes in their request. Therefore to make correction in the request they need to cancel the request and place a new request.
