How does the Aadhaar card serve as a proof of address?

The Aadhaar card serves as a proof of address through the address field mentioned on the card. When you enroll for an Aadhaar card, you provide your residential address as part of the application process. The address mentioned in your Aadhaar card is considered as the proof of address.

The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), the governing body for Aadhaar, verifies the address provided during the enrollment process through various mechanisms, including document validation and verification by authorized officials. Once the address is verified, it is linked to your Aadhaar number, and the verified address is printed on your Aadhaar card.

When you use your Aadhaar card as a proof of address, organizations or service providers can validate the address mentioned on the card by verifying it with the UIDAI's records. The Aadhaar card's address is considered valid and authentic for most purposes where a proof of address is required.

It's important to note that the Aadhaar card's address is based on the address provided during the enrollment process, and it may not always be the current or updated address. Therefore, if you have moved or changed your address, it's advisable to update the address in your Aadhaar card to ensure its accuracy.
