Aadhaar Card Address Update: As per the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), Aadhaar card is a valid address proof and in case there is any change, the same must be updated on the UIDAI website uidai.gov.in by the card holder. Aadhaar Card address update can be done even when the Aadhaar card holder doesn't have a valid document to prove current address. As per the UIDAI website, Aadhaar card address update can be done without any valid address proof document by requesting for Address Validation Letter with the help of an Address Verifier.
In Aadhaar Card address update process, Validation Letter is sent to the Address Verifier’s address. The letter will contain a secret code sent for validation after the Address Verifier consents to the use of address by the requesting resident. After the request is submitted successfully the resident will get the Aadhaar Validation Letter within 30 days from the date of raising request.
