How To Update Address in Aadhaar Without Address Proof

In the absence of document proof, you can update your address(where you are presently residing) in your Aadhaar through Address Validation Letter.

Address Validation Letter is letter which 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 his/her address by the requesting resident. After the request is submitted successfully the resident will get the Aadhaar Validation Letter within 180 days from the date of raising request.

An Address Verifier can be a family member, relative, friends, landlord who is willing to let you use their address as proof. Address Verifier must have the same address registered in his/her Aadhaar.

Important Points

  • The Address Lender/Verifier must be willing to give his/her consent allowing the Resident to use his/her address to be updated in resident's Aadhaar.
  • Both resident and Address Lender/Verifier are required to have their mobile numbers registered in their respective Aadhaar.
  • Both resident and Address Lender/Verifier will be required to get authenticated via OTP.
  • In case the Address Verifier misses giving consent within stipulated time the request will be invalid. The Resident will be required to initiate the process again.
