Migrants can change address by giving self-declaration
The government has allowed migrants to change address on Aadhaar by giving self declaration. It will help them open bank account and promote financial inclusion. The changes were made by amending the Prevention of Money-laundering (Maintenance of Records) Rules as per the gazette notification issued on 13 Nov. This move will allow an individual to provide a current address, different from the address as per the identity information available in the Central Identities Data Repository, on a self-declaration basis to the reporting entity. People may have residential address in their Aadhaar and give work address as current address. There are many cases where people may have their address in Aadhaar and want to give a more functional address for know your customer (KYC).
