How to change mobile number in Aadhaar Card?

change mobile number in aadhaar

For an Indian citizen, the Aadhaar is considered to be the most important of all documents to prove her/his identity. The electronic version of Know Your Customer (KYC) can be carried out using the Aadhaar details of an individual. Through the process of Aadhaar eKYC, the identity of an individual can be verified online. Aadhaar authentication helps in establishing the identity of the individual.

Aadhaar authentication is a process where the personal details (biometric and demographic details) and the Aadhaar number of the particular individual get submitted to the UIDAI to confirm the identity of that particular individual. The UIDAI responds with a ‘no’/’yes’ depending on whether the information submitted is true or false. Your mobile number must be linked to your Aadhaar because authentication takes place using the OTP sent to that particular number. This means you have to update your mobile number in case you have lost it/changed it for some reason.
