When to Change your Aadhar Card Address Online?

There are numerous scenarios where you might want to change your Aadhar card address! The most common of them are:-

  • Wrong Address provided while registering:- Yeah, in most cases, specially in areas where there are similar sounding other areas, you might mis-type an alphabet, block no. or something and hence your whole address gets changed. 
  • Printing Error:- In order for the aadhar card address to be wrong, it's not mandatory that the mistake will always be from your side. In some cases (read most) the Aadhar Card printing authority in India hires people who magically get their hands on a keyboard and hence they mistype the address despite it being correct from your side. 
  • You've shifted to some other location:- Yeah in  case you shift to some other place, either locally or to an entire new state, even then you'd need to change the address on your Aadhar Card.
