    The deadline for linking mobile number with Aadhaar number: 6th February 2018!!
    Though, you can still visit your nearest mobile store and complete the process of linking Aadhaar with your mobile number by registering biometrics, it is going to be more convenient for you with the commencement of the online linking for the same.
    In a move to make the process, the Government has announced three ways that will let people get the process completed from the comfort zone of their homes. The online verification methods of linking include:

    Link Your Mobile Number Online with Aadhaar

    1. Verification using OTP (One time Password)
    2. Agent-assisted Authentication
    3. IVRS (Interactive Voice Response System)

    Also, the Government of India has passed orders to the telecom companies to complete the process of linking Aadhaar with mobile number also called re-verification, at the door-step of the people including senior citizens, disabled and chronically ill people. This will be a great relief to a section of the people in country who, for these related reasons cannot visit the mobile stores in physical.

    Deadline for Re-verification: 6th February 2018

    Let’s make it clear on, “how you can link your Aadhaar with your mobile number”!!

    1. Verification using OTP (One time Password)
    It has been ordered by the Government of India to initiate the process of requesting “OTP” on ones mobile number which is registered with Aadhaar. This mode of re-verification will help the users to verify their other numbers (other than the mobile number registered in the database), that people may be using. This process will be processed though the platform of mobile apps or websites.

    2. Agent-assisted Authentication
    In the move the process of linking has now been simplified, as the telecom operators have now been asked not to disclose to the agents the e-KYC details of the subscribers! This was not the case before. Also, the details of subscriber’s data will not be stored on the device of the agent after the verification process is done.

    3. IVRS (Interactive Voice Response System)
    Specifically designed Applications will now be used for verifying the mobile numbers using IVRS or interactive Voice Response System.

    And, last but not the least; the Government had also directed the operators to make use of IRIS Scanning devices at their said terminals or services canters. This will particularly be targeted to disabled and senior citizens, who find it difficult to verify the process of authentication using the finger verification method.

    An important point to be noted here is that, in addition to linking the existing mobile number with Aadhaar, one has to fulfill the Aadhaar based e-KYC verification when applying for a new connection now.

    The Government is gearing up to complete the process of Aadhaar based re-verification as early as possible, probably by the end of the year!!

    Let’s cooperation with this initiative of the Government by following the rules and regulations as deployed!!
