New Delhi: UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India) has asked all telecom companies to provide such facilities to their customers so that they can get the information that their SIM card is linked to the Aadhaar number or they need to be done. UIDAI has taken such a step to stop the misuse of the premises.
Let us know that UIDAI had received this information earlier in the past that the agents of some retailers, operators and telecom companies are misusing the base authentication facility. These are misusing the base to issue a new SIM and to verify the mobile number.
The matter of issuing SIM card to another person on the basis of another agents has come to light. UIDAI has asked telecom companies to ensure that their retailers or agents are not involved in any kind of fraudulent activities.
The CEO of UIDAI said about the matter, that the consumer has the right to know that their mobile is registered with the base number. Therefore, we have asked all telecom companies to give such facility to the customers by March 15. After this facility, consumers will be able to know through SMS that their mobile number is linked to Aadhaar card or not … With this kind of facility, customers will also get information on how many mobile numbers are linked to their base number. …
Telecom companies have been asked to give this facility to subscribers via customer care number, email, web portal and SMS. Telecom companies have been told that if a number is incorrectly linked on another basis then they should form strictly in this case and lock the number.
