Govt Introduces New Methods To Link Aadhaar With Phones


New Delhi: The Communications Minister Manoj Sinha on Wednesday said that the government has introduced three new methods to link Aadhaar with mobile phones. The new methods to link Aadhaar with phones included one-time password (OTP).

The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has introduced the three new methods for linking of Aadhaar — through one-time password, app-based and interactive voice response (IVRS) facility.
