Telecom department makes mobile number-Aadhaar linking easier

You can just message your Aadhaar number from your registered mobile number at a designated number provided by the service providers. But UIDAI on Thursday announced that from December 1, you will have the choice to verify your mobile SIM with Aadhaar without providing your fingerprint to telecom service providers.

As per a DoT order, service providers will enable a scheme to use OTP-based verification for mobile users through SMS or voiced-based IVRS call or via mobile app. This means that you will be able to do the verification from your home through OTP received on your mobile number. This will be followed by a demographic verification of the number. Subscribers can verify or re-verify their mobile numbers from anywhere in the country irrespective of which service area their mobile connection belongs to.

Mumbai: Amidst all the controversy surrounding linking of Aadhaar with SIM and the safety of submitting our biometric details to telecom operators, the Department of Telecom has chose to launch an app-based SIM-Aadhaar verification. You can also link your Aadhaar with your telecom service provider by going to the respective service centre.

As far as senior citizens are concerned, telecom operators are directed to offer verification facility to subscribers at their doorsteps for the convenience of those with disability, illness or old age. The re-verification exercise is scheduled to be completed by early 2018.
