Aadhaar is issued by UIDAI and is mandatory for every individual to have one. It is a 12-digit unique number and is essential to avail of numerous government schemes and benefits. It works as a proof of identity and must be submitted for a major number of purposes like opening a bank account, applying for a PAN card, etc.
Applicants can enrol for anÂ Aadhaar cardÂ by making a visit to the official Aadhaar enrolment centre. Upon successful enrolment for the Aadhaar card, the applicant is provided with an acknowledgement slip which can be used to furtherÂ track Aadhaar statusÂ . UIDAI has given the flexibility to applicants to track Aadhaar card status online through its website.
With numerous UIDAI services available on its official website, an applicant is given the ease to make changes to his/her address, name, gender, location and more online. When an applicant relocates from his/her current location to a new one, it becomes compulsory to update his/her address to use Aadhaar effectively across the nation.
For theÂ Aadhaar address update, an applicant is required to fill an Aadhaar address update form along with supporting documents and a fee as per UIDAI. In this blog, we will provide you with a list of Aadhaar address update documents to submit for the Aadhaar address update process.
