There is no final decision on linking of mobile number with Aadhaar cards informed by the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) on Tuesday. The DoT assured that the mobile numbers will not be disconnected even if not linked with the Aadhaar number of consumers as the case is still pending with the Supreme Court.

“The Department of Telecom is waiting for the Supreme Court verdict on Aadhaar linking to decide on the action against those who do not want to link their mobile number with Aadhaar," quoted DoT Secretary Aruna Sundararajan. 

The judgment about the mobile-Aadhaar linking will be given by the Supreme Court on November 13.

The companies are not planning to disconnect mobile numbers for not linking with the UIDAI number said Sundararajan.

“We are also working on alternatives for people who are abroad (to help them link their mobile number with Aadhaar),” she added.

The existing subscriber base using Aadhaar cards will be re-verified by the telecom operators by December 1 as directed by the Department of Telecommunication.

Mobile subscribers can also re-verify their numbers by using One Time Password (OTP) without visiting mobile retail outlets.

By December 1, people would be clear on what options they have for linking their Aadhaar with mobile numbers.

 “As per government directive, it is mandatory to link Aadhaar with your mobile number else your number will be terminated,” she further said. 

However, Union Telecom minister Manoj Sinha underlined that the government wants to provide mobile connection and not disconnection.

“The DoT is easing the process for mobile subscribers to re-verify their numbers through Aadhaar without visiting telecom retail outlets," Sinha added.
