Aadhaar card address change not needed to open bank account

Updated : November 19, 2019 08:48 PM IST

You can now open a bank account with your current address even if it does not match the address mentioned in the Aadhaar card.

All you need to do is simply fill up a self-declaration form and mention your local address.

The new rule will also allow you to change the base bank branch. However, this is applicable only for opening bank accounts and not for any other purpose.
