The Employees’ Provident Fund Organization, under the Ministry of Labour and Employment in the Government of India, states that by the will not accecpt Adhaar card as vaild document for verifiend date of Birth and deactivates it from its UIDIA ( unique identification Authority of India)


According to Unique identification Authority of India Directive (Circular No. 08 of 2023), the agency observed that Aadhaar card was being considered as proof for date of birth by several beneficiaries. Aadhaar Card, while a unique identifier, was not acknowledged as proof of date of birth according to the Aadhaar Act, 2016.

The UIDAI states and promotes that Aadhaar card is provided for identity verification, not proof of Date of birth.
Following the UIDAI directive the EPFO removed Aadhaar from the list of acceptable documents for correcting the date of birth. The circular highlighted that Aadhaar’s removal pertained to Table-B of Annexure-1 of the Joint Declaration SOP issued earlier. This decision was taken in to account by taking the approval from the Central Provident fund Commissioner.
