Other options for Aadhaar-mobile linking
As per the government, linking Aadhaar ID to mobile number is now compulsory and needs to be done by February 2018.
At present, mobile phone subscribers are being asked to go to the retail outlets of their respective service providers to link their mobile numbers to Aadhaar.
However, from 1 December, this will not be the only way for Aadhaar-mobile linking.
The UIDAI has given its approval to three new modes for Aadhaar-mobile linking.
One method is to link the mobile numbers through OTP -one-time password.
Similarly, app or IVRS facility will also be available for the process. As per the UIDAI, all these methods are safe.
