New Aadhaar Service to Update Address to be Introduced

According to a notification by the Aadhaar authority, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), the new service is proposed to start on April 1. "Residents who are not having acceptable proof of Address may submit their request for address verification through Aadhaar letter having secret PIN. Once the letter is received by the resident, he/she can use the secret PIN to update his/her address in Aadhaar on the SSUP online portal," it said.

Often people staying in rented accommodation or migrant labour face problem in updating their address and face issues in availing services for which Aadhaar is required. Under the new system, an Aadhaar holder can opt for Aadhaar letter having a secret PIN from the UIDAI website like banks and credit card companies provide letters with a PIN for activating for debit or credit cards.

The authority is expected to run a pilot before starting the new service, from January 1, 2019, before making it functional from April 1, 2019, a PTI report said. At present, Aadhaar holders are required to fill a form and submit any one of the 35 documents mentioned under Aadhaar (Enrolment and Update) regulation which include passport, bank passbook, voter ID, driving license, registered rent agreement, marriage certificate etc.
