Leading telecom operator, Bharti Airtel, after a long wait has finally introduced the online Aadhaar reverification with mobile connections for senior citizens, physically challenged and non-resident Indians. Currently, the online-based reverification service is not applicable for every Airtel subscriber as it’s available only for senior citizens above 70 years. The web-based verification will allow the people falling under the eligibility criteria verify their SIM card right from home itself.
The verification process is pretty straightforward. Head over to the link and select the criteria which you fall under: Senior Citizens or Physically Challenged or NRI. While the process is similar to both senior citizens and physically challenged, it’ slightly different for non-resident Indians.
After selecting the criteria, Airtel will ask you to enter the mobile number which you want to verify with Aadhaar. After successfully entering the mobile number, Airtel will send an OTP which you’ll be required to enter in the next step.
After successfully entering the mobile number, a new page will appear which ask you to enter your personal details such as full name, number of mobile connections held in customer’s name, address details, etc. Also, in the same step, Airtel will ask you to enter your Proof of Identity. After submitting, you’ll be required a trusted person with Aadhaar number to reverify your mobile number with Aadhaar.
Verify Others Mobile Number With Your Aadhaar:
Furthermore, Airtel is also allowing other users to help the senior citizen, physically challenged, and NRI’s to verify their mobile number with Aadhaar right from its website itself. In this method, Airtel will ask you to enter the person’s mobile number of whom you’re verifying and a transaction ID which needs to be generated by following the above steps (I assume).
After entering the transaction ID and mobile number, you’re required to enter your Aadhaar number to verify with OTP. Post verification the other person’s mobile number will be linked to your Aadhaar number.
BSNL is already offering this mechanism, and it’s good to see Airtel stepping into the game finally. Vodafone and Idea Cellular are yet to implement the online based reverification which might happen in the next few days. All the other Airtel customers can dial 14546 tollfree number or visit Airtel store to get the verification done. – Telecom Talk
