The process of linking your Aadhaar card with mobile number just got easier. On Wednesday, the government announced a number of measures, including allowing re-verification at subscribers’ doorstep and One Time Password (OTP) based authentication of existing users, to make the entire exercise easier for telecom subscribers. According to a report by PTI, this decision was taken to offer facility for re-verification at the subscribers’ doorstep for the convenience of those with disability, illness or old age. In case you still don’t know how to link Aadhaar card with mobile number without visiting the store, here is what the government has come up with:

First of all, the operators have been asked to place an online mechanism (through website, and other means) for people to request for such service. Apart from this, the government has also asked telecom to initiate a scheme to use OTP based re-verification of mobile subscribers using SMS or IVRS or on their mobile app providers. “This means that if one mobile number is registered in Aadhaar database, then the OTP method can be used for reverification of that number as well as other mobile numbers owned by the subscriber,” a source was quoted saying by PTI.

In case of agent-assisted biometric authentication for SIM re-verification or issuance, telcos have been asked to ensure that full e-KYC details of subscribers are not made visible to the agent. Nor should data be stored on the agent’s device. These measures have been taken with an aim to improve ease of re-verification and its success rate.

The telecom operators have also been asked to deploy iris devices at “appropriate number of service points” so subscribers have access to iris authentication “within a reasonable geographical distance”. This step can be helpful for people who face a problem with fingerprint authentication, owing to poor fingerprint quality, disability or old age.

These steps were taken as some residents, especially senior citizens found it difficult to verify their identity using fingerprint-based Aadhaar authentication. Also, there were cases where residents – those bed ridden, ill or physically challenged – were unable to visit the service points of telecom service providers.

          The biometrics-based Aadhaar program is inherently flawed. Biometrics can be easily lifted by external means, there is no need to hack the system. 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. That is why advanced countries like the US, UK, etc. did not implement such a self-destructive biometrics-based system. If the biometric details of a person are COMPROMISED ONCE, then even a new Aadhaar card will not help the person concerned. This is NOT like blocking an ATM card and taking a new one.

            Its not as simple as you see in Movies. Govt doesnt adopt any such system without trying all Pros n Cons.. Secondly why compare everytime looking at US UK, Do you really feel so insecure at your own country's capabilities? Dont be so negative minded.

            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 personal information and the purposes it could be used for, the dangers of such a centralized database being hacked, and the unreliability of such large-scale biometric verification processes. The Aadhaar program was designed in 2009 by mainly considering the 'Identi-ty Cards Act 2006' of UK, but the UK stopped that project in 2010, whereas India continued with the biometrics-based program. We must think why the United Kingdom abandoned their project and destroyed the data collected. (Google: 'Identi-ty Cards Act 2006' and 'Identi-ty Documents Act 2010' )

                  The Supreme Court is yet to take a decision on the validity of Aadhaar and whether the State can compulsorily link Aadhaar to various programs and all financial transactions. The Supreme Court is set to hear peti-tions related to Aadhaar including those for scrapping the Aadhaar Act, stopping biometric profiling, halting bank and mobile databases seeding with Aadhaar, etc. in November 2017.

                    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.

                        The US Social Security Number (SSN) card 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 for the purpose of issuing Social Security Number. 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.

                            UID knows your mobile number. But mobile provider does not know your aadhaar number to identify you. That is why you need to provide the mobile operator your aadhaar number. So you will still receive the OTP.
