The change of address within the jurisdiction does not change the TAN. However, it may involve a change in the Assessing Officer (AO). Therefore, such changes must be intimated to the ITD via change/ correction for filing. In case of a change in the state of the deductor, a new TAN needs to be allotted and the previous TAN needs to be surrendered.
The printout of the webpage showing the details of the TAN from the Income Tax Department (ITD) website can serve as proof of TAN.
Address in TAN doesn’t change if an Individual has changed his/her address with the AO’s jurisdiction. However, it may require a change in Assessing Officer (AO)
