UIDAI introduces new process to change address on Aadhaar Cards online: Check step by step process

New Delhi: The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has introduced a new process for  changing or updating the address on Aadhaar cards. Aadhaar users can now change  or update address in Aadhaar card without submitting any  documents. They can now change or update address in Aadhaar online with the consent of the Head of Family (HoF).  Anyone above the age of 18 can be an HOF and share their address with their relatives through this process.

‘The HoF based online address update in Aadhaar will be of great help to the relative(s) of a resident–like children, spouse, parents etc, who don’t have supporting documents in their own name to update address in their Aadhaar. With people moving cities and towns due to various reasons within the country, such a facility will be beneficial for millions of people. This choice would be in addition to the existing address update facility using any valid Proof of Address document prescribed by UIDAI,’ said UIDAI in an official release.
