UIDAI allows change in address online with the consent of head of family
The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) in a notification issued on 3 January 2023 has allowed residents to update addresses in Aadhaar online with the consent of their head of family.
The new process can be initiated after submitting proof of relationship documents like a ration card, mark sheet, marriage certificate, passport etc, mentioning the name of both the applicant and head of family (HOF) and the relationship between them. The process requires OTP-based authentication by the HOF.
According to the UIDAI any resident above the age of 18 can be a HOF for this purpose and can share his or her address with his or her relatives through this process.
Residents have to pay a fee of Rs 50 for the service.
