You can update your current address in your Aadhaar even if you don't have any documentary proof of address (PoA) in your name. UIDAI says that this can be done with the help of an Address Verifier and by sending an online request for an Address Validation Letter. This service is particularly useful for people who have recently shifted their residence.

The Verifier will receive an SMS with link on his/her registered mobile number to give consent for the update. Now he/she needs to click on the link to receive a second SMS with OTP for verification, enter that OTP, captcha and verify.

After this is verified, you will get a Service Request Number (SRN) via SMS. Now, log in with 'SRN', preview address, edit local language (if required) and click on 'Submit'. Then you will receive a letter. Also, 'Address Validation Letter' with 'Secret Code' will be sent to verifier's address via post.

Finally, re-visit 'SSUP' (UIDAI) website and click on 'Proceed to Update Address' link. After that, log in with Aadhaar, select option to 'Update Address via Secret Code', enter 'Secret Code'. Review the new address and click on 'Submit'. Don't forget to note your 'Update Request Number' (URN) shown on screen.
