Changed Address? How To Update It On Aadhaar Card

 Have you changed your residential address recently? Do you know you can get the address given on your Aadhaar updated from the comfort of your home? The UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India), which issues the 12-digit Aadhaar number, has provided a facility on its website that enables Aadhaar card holders to request changes in basic details online. That means you can change or modify the address details fed into the Aadhaar database through internet. Besides address, the online tool by the UIDAI – called ‘Aadhaar Self-Service Update Portal – also allows Aadhaar card bearers to change their basic details such as mobile number and email.


“Mobile number is mandatory to receive a password for login,” according to the UIDAI website – This mobile number is the one registered at the time of applying for Aadhaar. Users can log into the Aadhaar self-service update portal and submit a request in three steps, the UIDAI portal added. These steps are: login with Aadhaar number, upload documents and select the service provider.
