How to link Aadhaar with mobile number: In some very crucial news for the public, the Narendra Modi government has made it mandatory to link SIM card with Aadhaar card before 2018 to avoid deactivation of mobile phone numbers. The Supreme court had passed the order on Saturday after hearing the Lok Niti Foundation case regarding linking of Aadhaar card and SIM card. Following the order passed by the apex court, SIM cards which will not be linked with Aadhaar cards will be deactivated. As per ANI report, the decision was taken by the government to prevent criminals, fraudsters, and terrorists from using SIMs in the name of ordinary citizens. Considering it is so crucial to country’s security, here is how you can do it:

Here are the steps to link SIM card to Aadhaar card for the first timers:

Step 1: Visit your nearest Aadhaar centre to get Aadhaar Update/ Correction Form or download it from the UIDAI website.

Step 2: Fill the required details correctly and submit the form to the concerned person at the centre and mention on the form that only the mobile number has to be updated.

Step3: During submission a photocopy of the Aadhaar card, Identity proof such a PAN card, Voter ID or Passport. Following the submission, biometrics will be verified at the enrollment centre.

Step 4: After verifying the biometrics, you will be given an acknowledgement slip. Usually, it takes 2-5 working days for the updation to happen but as per the UIDAI helpline, the turnaround time for the updation is 10 days.

How to update the mobile number:
Users can update a different mobile number online, but the customers’ existing number should be linked to the Aadhaar prior to this step. This is because the OTP to authenticate the updation would be sent to the users existing number.

Step 1: Visit the official UIDAI website, uidai.gov.in.

Step 2: Click on the option Aadhaar Update which will redirect the users to Aadhaar Self-Service portal.

Step 3: Enter your Aadhaar number, and the Captcha text and request for OTP. The OPT will be sent to your existing mobile number.

Step 4: Enter the OTP and then the users will be redirected to the page where customers can update the desired details.

Step 5: Under ‘Select field(s) to update’, select ‘Mobile Number’ Now enter your new mobile number that you want to record in the database and submit.

      A centralized and inter-linked biometric database like Aadhaar will lead to profiling and self-censorship, endangering freedom. Personal data gathered under the Aadhaar program is prone to misuse and surveillance. Aadhaar project has created a vulnerability to identi-ty fraud, even identi-ty theft. Easy harvesting of biometrics traits and publicly-available Aadhaar numbers increase the risk of impersonation, especially online and banking fraud. Centralized databases can be hacked. Biometrics can be cloned, copied and reused. Thus, BIOMETRICS CAN BE FAKED. High-resolution cameras can capture your fingerprints and iris information from a distance. Every eye hospital will have iris images of its patients. So another person can clone your fingerprints and iris images without your knowledge, and the same can be used for authentication. If the Aadhaar scheme is NOT STOPPED by the Supreme Court, the biometric features of Indians will soon be cloned, misused, and even traded.

          If I have mobile connections from more than one Service Provider, do I need to link all the mobile connections? If so how?

            What if some criminals use our adhar number to get our personal information. Like bank account number, mobile number or what if they withdraw all our money from our accounts. Just like last year some one hacked state bank of India's information about ATM cards and they had to deactivate them. I don't think our cybercell is capable of trackdoum those criminals what if some thing happened with adhar number who will be responsible for that? Is government of India's going to pay for the fraud if that happens?

                      Today I went to the Customer Service Centre of BSNL to link my mobile phone sim with Aadhaar. However, the fingerprint scanner was not reading my fingerprints at all. There they told to come after two days and try once again. They also informed me that for old people this happens sometimes. I am nearing eighty. I looked at my fingers and found that the lines are not very legible. I had done this linking in Airtel office a couple of months back and there it went without any hassle. What I can do in this situation. And reading about this on the net I found that this is a common problem and not unique to me. I wonder what we unfortunate ones can do if the scanner is unable to scan our fingerprints. Does it mean that such people will be denied the access to a mobile phone? And more particularly for older men. It is they who will be handicapped if they cannot use mobile phones. They need more as they may have to call someone in case of emergencies and they cannot do it.

                            When your fingerprint gets stolen, printed and used for aadhaar pay, cloning SIM and changing bank password using OTP, your aadhaar devotion will vanish. Jai Hind. 1. 25 lakh families in Rajasthan are unable to withdraw ration even after seeding #AADHAARFAIL with their ration card. 2. #AADHAAR authentication does not work for half billion Indians. 3. AADHAAR authentication does not work even after updating bio-metrics and waiting for 90 days 4. AADHAAR bio-metrics can be stolen, printed and used for #AADHAAR pay 5. #AADHAAR does not work for NRIs, people outside India 6. AADHAR can not be generated if a person's fingerprint matches with someone else's with 60 percentage probability. 7. Rogue government can deactivate your #AADHAAR blocking ur gas, electricity, mobile, bank account 8. AADHAAR works for millions of illegals staying in India 9. AADHAAR is blocking subsidies for millions of legitimate people 10. Take 10 lakh insurance for each #AADHAAR failure case/delete

                              The intention of the govt may be good, but considering the fact that mobile phones are being used by even illiterate persons, school children, housewives and many users having multiple genuine numbers, it is plain harassment and hassle to link with adhar. The people living in villages will have to waste time and money to travel to the nearest adhar centre. A simpler method like SMS can be a convenient option. The hardcore criminals and fraudsters will certainly devise ingenious ways to circumvent the rule.

                                That the Supreme Court ordered linking of mobile numbers with Aadhaar is another big lie! The Supreme Court only ordered re-verification of all mobile numbers as was done a few years ago. But the Supreme Court never specified that Aadhaar was to be used for this purpose. When will the Modi government stop issuing Aadhaar-related threats periodically? One doubts if India is a democracy or a banana republic ruled by a despotic dictator.

                                  You are correct, Mr. Thakur. But the PM doesn't care for the numerous problems created for people due to his whimsical propaganda including Aadhaar card, demonetization, BHIM scheme, distributing 15 Lakh rupees to each poor person, bringing back illegal 'black' money from Swiss banks, and so on. He is busy wandering all over the world, and elections in Gujarat.

                                  The validity of Aadhaar and whether the state can compulsorily link Aadhaar to various programs and all financial transactions have been challenged in the Supreme Court. On 24 August 2017, a nine-judge bench ruled against the central government to declare that privacy is a fundamental right under the Consti-tution of India. The Supreme Court is set to hear peti-tions challenging the validity and other aspects of Aadhaar in the first week of November. So just wait for the verdict.

                                    UK’s Biometric ID Database was dismantled. Why the United Kingdom's biometrics-linked National Identi-ty Card project to create a centralized register of sensitive information about residents similar to Aadhaar was scrapped in 2010?? The reasons were the massive threat posed to the privacy of people, the possibility of a surveillance state, the dangers of maintaining such a huge centralized repository of sensitive information, and the purposes it could be used for, and the dangers of such a centralized database being hacked. The other reasons were the unreliability of such a large-scale biometric verification processes, and the ethics of using biometric identification.

                                      The US Social Security Number (SSN) has no biometric details, no photograph, no physical description and no birth date. All it does is confirm that a particular number has been issued to a particular name. Instead, a driving license or state ID card is used as an identification for adults. The US government does not collect the biometric details of its own citizens.

The US collects the fingerprints of only those citizens who are involved in any criminal activity (it has nothing to do with SSN), and the citizens of other countries who come to the US.

                                        The privacy laws of the United States deal with several different legal concepts. One is the invasion of privacy, a tort based in common law allowing an aggrieved party to bring a lawsuit against an individual who unlawfully intrudes into his or her private affairs, discloses his or her private information, publicizes him or her in a false light, or appropriates his or her name for personal gain. The essence of the law derives from a right to privacy, defined broadly as "the right to be let alone."

                                          Because of my old age(75yrs) the print on my fingers erased. The biometric system didn't recognize my finger print. Now the uidai has to clarify the problem and whether or not the aged people eligible for the simcard. Then what about the validity of the Adhaar card for the aged people. Pls, clarify my doubts.
