Similarly, to make correction in Aadhar, UIDAI has established online service called SSUP or Self Service Update Portal.

One can just visit the portal and apply for change in Aadhar card address. They need to upload document as proof or verify using secret code received. Submission of application for correction in Aadhar is called Aadhar update request.

How to get URN number for SSUP?

  • After that, you will have to check for the current address in Aadhar there. Verify that it is as in your current Aadhar card.
  • If yes, then you need to enter the new address which you want to be printed on your Aadhar card. The new address must be a real address where UIDAI may send your Aadhar card by postal address.
  • After entering the new address, you need to prove the Address by uploading any Residential certificate. You can use your old Voter ID card, Ration Card, Driving license or Passport, whichever has the new address printed on those.
  • After that, you will be asked to select the BPO service provider. Select your preferred service provider from the list there.
  • Then, you can submit the final application and UIDAI will generate URN number for that service request.
  • Save the URN number for checking status later.
