It’s great to have self-service options for tasks like these! Here is how you can update your address details in Aadhaar.
Step 1: Portal
Go to Aadhaar Self Service Update Portal. You can also go to https://www.uidai.gov.in/ and click Address Update Request (Online) in the Aadhaar Update section.
Read the instructions and click Proceed.
Step 2: Login
You will need the Aadhaar number and mobile linked with it for the OTP to login. There is also a CAPTCHA text verification to verify it’s a human logging in. There is an option to use TOTP as well.
On the next screen, select “Address” checkbox and click Submit.
Step 3: Enter new address details
You now have an option to enter the contact details. As you enter the information in each field, you can see the transliteration in the local language as well. If something doesn’t convert right, you can directly click in the local language text box and try variations in English to get it right – once you type in and click in a different field, the text will appear in local language.
On the next screen, review the information entered and check the box to “confirm” all is well to Proceed.
Step 4: Upload proof of address
You will then need to provide the proof of address as required. There are many options supported for proof of address. Below is the list.
|Supported Proof of Address (PoA) Documents Containing Name and Address|
On the next screen, you can confirm that the proof of address uploaded is according to the recommendation above.
Step 5: Select BPO
Depending on your location, you might have multiple vendors/ BPOs listed. You have to select one to continue.
The final confirmation is diaplayed with a reference number. It normally takes about 5 days to hear from the BPO. They send an email with the update.
Note: Ensure the address details you enter are EXACTLY the same! I added one extra word the first time to add clarity and they rejected quoting mismatch.
