How To Update Your Address Online In Aadhaar | Step-By-Step Guide
Updating your address information is a simple, hassle-free process.

THE UNIQUE Identification Number, or Aadhaar, is issued to Indian nationals, serving as an identity card, akin to national identifiers such as the Social Security Number in the US. It is a universal number that helps agencies and services to authenticate the identity of the beneficiary by availing authentication services. 

Sometimes, even when data on the Aadhaar card is correct, there is a need to update it – say, if there is a change in one’s permanent address, if a child completes 15 years of age, or if there are spelling errors in the address.

So, if you want to make any changes in your Aadhaar card, you can easily do it by visiting UIDAI’s official website. To change or update the address in your Aadhaar, you need to login to the official website of UIDAI – uidai.gov.in – and click on 'Update Your Aadhaar' under the 'My Aadhaar' menu. Let us look at the step-by-step process to change or update your address details on Aadhaar card.
