Government simplifies Aadhaar-based verification to help elderly, disabled mobile users
The government has started important measures to make the Aadhaar-verification process of existing SIMs simpler and help disabled and elderly mobile users.
The government has informed telecom companies to offer facility for re-verification at the homes of people with disability, illness and elderly people.
The companies have been asked to introduce an online website or method for disabled people and elderly for availing the service.
Also, a scheme will be started to use OTP based re-verification of mobile users using SMS or IVRS or on their mobile app.
It means a person registered in Aadhaar data can use the OTP method for re-verification of that number and other numbers owned by the user.
