The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has solved what can be termed as one of the most-common problems many users have with their Aadhaar number. The statutory body UIDAI has allowed residents to verify their mobile numbers and email IDs linked with their Aadhaar. This means that Aadhaar users can now check the mobile numbers and email IDs linked with their Aadhaar.
Why the need to verify
“It had come to the notice of the UIDAI that in some instances, residents were not aware/sure about which of their mobile numbers is seeded to their Aadhaar. Hence residents were worried that Aadhaar OTP might be going to some other mobile number. Now, with this facility, the residents can check these quite easily,” said UIDAI in a statement explaining the requirement of the new feature.
How to verify the email ID and mobile number linked to your Aadhaar
The facility can be availed under ‘Verify email/mobile Number’ feature on the official website ( or through mAadhaar app. The feature has been developed for the residents to verify that their own email/mobile number is seeded with respective Aadhaar.
This facility gives confirmation to Aadhaar holders that email/mobile number under his/her knowledge is only seeded to respective Aadhaar. It also notifies the person in case a particular mobile number is not linked, and informs them to take necessary steps to update the mobile number, if they wish so.
What happens if the mobile number/email ID is verified
In case mobile number is already verified, residents will see a message like, ‘the mobile number you have entered is already verified with our records’, displayed on their screen. In case a resident does not remember the mobile number, she/he has given during enrolment she/he can check the last three digits of the mobile on Verify Aadhaar feature on Myaadhaar portal or mAadhaar app.
How to update email ID and mobile number on your Aadhaar
If a person wants to link an email/mobile number with Aadhaar or wants to update her/his email/mobile number, she/he may visit the nearest Aadhaar centre.
