Else is an adverb; not an adjective. In the sentence "What else document...", it is used as an adjective qualifying document and it is a wrong usage. Instead, you may rephrase it as: What other documents are required...? What else do you require apart from the Aadhaar Card...? What other documents do you require...?

Else can be used in the following ways: (from macmillandictionary.com)

after a pronoun such as ‘something’, ‘nothing’, ‘anyone’, or ‘everyone’:

He married someone else.

Is there anything else you wanted?

after the adverbs ‘somewhere’, ‘anywhere’, ‘everywhere’, and ‘nowhere’:

You’ll have to sit somewhere else.

after a word such as ‘what’, ‘who’, ‘how’, or ‘whatever’:

Who else was with you?Where else did you go?

after ‘much’ and ‘little’:

I have little else to offer.

used for showing that you are referring to other things, people, places etc, apart from the particular ones that you mention or know about

You mustn’t tell anyone else – it’s a secret between you and me.

Before we do anything else, we must sit down and make a list.

There isn’t much else to tell you.

This could only happen in the United States – nowhere else in the world!
