Do you need to correct or update the address given on your Aadhaar card? Did you know that you can do so online through the website of the UIDAI or Unique Identification Authority of India, the issuer of Aadhaar card? The UIDAI enables an Aadhaar card holder to request a change in address, among other basic details, through a self-service portal - uidai.gov.in. This was said by the UIDAI on microblogging site Twitter. The UIDAI has provided several Aadhaar tools on its website - uidai.gov.in - for the public. Besides address, holders of Aadhaar card can request changes in name, date of birth, gender, mobile number and email fed into the Aadhaar database

The UIDAI's self-service update portal enables users to submit a request to update their Aadhaar profiles in three steps: Login with Aadhaar, Upload Documents and Select BPO Service Provider, according to its website.
