How to change Aadhaar address online without address proof?
In the absence of document proof, you can still update your address (where you are currently residing) in your Aadhaar. However, for that, the consent and authentication of the address verifier who is willing to let you use their address as proof is a must. Address verifier may be a family member, relative, friends, the landlord.
Before jumping into the actual process of change Aadhaar address online without address proof, first, understand these basic definitions and who are all eligible for address updating online without valid address proof.
# Address Validation Letter
Address Validation Letter is a 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 30 days from the date of raising request.
# Requirements to change Aadhaar address online without address proof
- Both resident and Address Verifier are required to have their mobile numbers registered in their respective Aadhaar Card.
- Both resident and Address Verifier will be required to get authenticated via OTP.
- The Address Verifier must be willing to give his/her consent allowing the Resident to use his/her address to be updated in the resident’s Aadhaar.
- Both Resident and the Verifier are required to be in synch while the Request for Address Validation Letter is still in process.
- 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.
Now let us discuss the process to change Aadhaar address online without address proof.
