How To Update Aadhaar Address Online
Here’s a step-by-step guide to change the address fed into the Aadhaar profile online:
Go to the UIDAI website – uidai.gov.in – and select the “update your address online” option under the “update Aadhaar” section. It can also be accessed through a direct link.
Users need to have their Aadhaar-registered mobile number handy in order to update, correct or change their address using this online service.
Enter the mobile number and click on “get OTP” to proceed.
Enter the OTP or one-time passcode, received on the registered mobile number.
Those who don’t have their current mobile number registered with the UIDAI are required to visit an Aadhaar centre in order to apply for a change in address.
Select the “address update” checkbox, and enter the required details.
Once you have filled the complete address, you are required to upload the scanned copies of original supporting documents.
After the user submits the request, the UIDAI portal issues a Update Request Number (URN). This number can be used to track the status of the request.
