Tips on Uploading Documents

Here are some tips on gathering and uploading the required documents efficiently:

  • Upload the scanned copies of the documents in a sequence for the Aadhar card address change process.
  • All the documents scanned should be of standard A4 size
  • Make sure that the scanned documents are legible and that the pages do not overlap
  • Each scanned copy must be without any marks
  • If you are re-scanning a document, remove the previous scan

Required Documents and Information

Here is a list of the essential documents and information required to update your Aadhaar card address:

Below-mentioned Documents are accepted as Address Proof:

  • Ration card
  • Voter ID card
  • Indian Passport
  • Kisan Photo Passbook
  • Disability Identity Card
  • Photograph Identity Card like Bhamashah, Domicile Certificate, Resident Certificate, JanAadhaar, MGNREGA/ NREGS Job Card, Labour Card, etc.

  • Certificate issued on UIDAI Standard Certificate format

Fees and Processing Time

Any online correction or change in address on the Aadhaar card requires the applicant to pay a fee of INR 50 via any of the preferred online gateways. This fee is applicable for any type of demographic update and is inclusive of GST.

The processing time for an update to take effect is 30 to 90 days. If your request for an address change is not complied with within this time frame, you may dial 1947 (toll-free) or write to help@uidai.gov.in for further assistance.

To check the status of the update in your Aadhaar, you will need your Enrolment ID (EID) or Update Request Number (URN). You can check the EID on your updated acknowledgment receipt at the top. It is a 14-digit number together with a 14-digit date and time of enrolment number. So, the combined 28 digits form the Enrollment ID (EID).

To track the status, go to https://myaadhaar.uidai.gov.in/CheckAadhaarStatus type your EID/URN and the captcha code, and click on the submit button to receive the update on the status.

Prerequisites and Eligibility

You are eligible to change the address on your Aadhaar card if you have valid address proof. In case you don’t have valid address proof, you should at least have a copy of the Address Validation Letter received from UIDAI. It is very simple to update the address on Aadhaar by following some simple steps online.

You would require some documents to serve as proof of address to change your address on your Aadhaar, as mentioned above.

Another prerequisite for changing the address on Aadhaar is having a valid Aadhaar number and a registered mobile number. However, you need a registered mobile number only if you are updating the address on Aadhaar online. For offline changes, you can visit the nearest center of the Permanent Aadhaar Enrolment with other supporting documents.
