“Link your Aadhaar with your mobile no. to stay active.’’

This is the message Airtel has been flashing for months. For days now, telecom companies have been asking their customers almost in a threatening tone to link their Aadhaar with their phone no., if not done, they will end their service. The fear is so much that even Bangalore’s Project director of UIDAI was not spared. His sim was deactivated saying the proprietor had not registered the SIM to their Aadhaar cards. This despite the Supreme Court extending the deadline to link Aadhaar with all services to March 2018.

But many are ready to link to not face short-term inconveniences. A Twitter user was up for a surprise when she went to airtel store to link her Aadhaar with her phone number, she got to know that her Aadhaar is already linked to nine phone numbers which she never approved of. She raised the issue on Twitter, tagging airtel and UIDAI.

The reply she got from UIDAI, the authority responsible for any issue related to Aadhaar was even more surprising – “At least the Aadhaar holder knows how many mobiles are linked to his/her Aadhaar number. In such cases, one can complain against the mobile company to TRAI or TERM cell of DOT for fraudulently issuing SIM against their Aadhaar Number.”





Later on, Airtel replied to her stating that her Aadhaar is only connected to one phone no. and the user said that she has got a message stating that there was software coding glitch from Airtel which they are trying to resolve.






Since the past few months, UIDAI has adamantly been on the stand that Aadhaar doesn’t have any loopholes and it cannot be breached. But people have been facing issues/inconveniences due to faultiness in the application of Aadhaar.
