Aadhar or Unique Identification number is becoming a mandatory identity card for every citizen of India. It will be impossible to do any official work without this number. Near future UIDAI will be the mandatory document for every Indian citizen as it will be linked with multiple facilities.
So you need to update your detail on the Aadhar card if your address changed or surname changed. But changing surname and address is becoming pretty problematic for the people. In this busy life, it is quite hectic to go and find out the Aadhar Kendra for the update. So the government of India relaxed the procedure for the citizens. Now anyone can change their needed things just sitting at the home with just a few clicks.
Here are the simple steps that you need to follow to update your address on your Aadhaar card:
1) Visit the official website of UIDAI – /uidai.gov.in. Click on ‘Aadhaar update request (online)’.
2) This will direct you to another window which clearly lists out the steps of updating address in Aadhaar card number: STEP 1: Login with Aadhaar, STEP 2: Address Update Request STEP 3: Upload Documents and STEP 4: Select BPO Service Provider and submit the request. Click on ‘Proceed’.
3) Input your Aadhaar number and the text verification code as shown on screen. This will generate an OTP which you will receive on your registered mobile number.
4) Input the OTP received on your registered mobile number.
5) On the next page, select ‘address’.
6) Input the address details that you want to update on the next page.
7) Review the details and upload the relevant documents to support your update like voter ID details, driver’s licence etc.
