No it won't effect sampath,it is a mere formality to fill address there,even most of the people filled fully/partially wrong addresses(because application was unable to register "-","/" etc. in address those are very important!earlier the interview call letters dispatched to respective houses,but now everything is going on Internet.At the time of GD&PI,they may ask us to fill some form where you must give correct address for their reference.
