As per previous information, an Address Validation letter was enough for changing the address. 

This facility has been dicontinued until further notice and the citiziens must furnish a valid proof of ID.

UIDAI had earlier announced that people could change their address on the Aadhar Card using the Address Validation Letter. As per a recent update, the Address Validation Letter has been discontinued until further notice.

This does not mean that a citizen cannot have the address changed. It can still be done and people need to follow certain steps and use the address proofs which are in the list of acceptable documents.
