How to link SIM With Aadhaar Card

ALERT SIM cards not linked to Aadhaar will be deactivated after February 2018

According to an IANS report published on NDTV, the move is in order to be in compliance with a Supreme Court order in the Lokniti Foundation case in February this year.

The government had told the Supreme Court in February that it would put in place, within a year, an effective mechanism for the verification of prepaid mobile users who constitute 90% of the total subscribers.

Informed sources told IANS that the Aadhaar biometrics can not be stored by mobile operators and so they will not be able to access the consumer's data.

Following the order passed by the apex court, SIM cards which will not be linked with Aadhaar cards will be deactivated.
