  1. Hahahaaa...!!!!
    You will definitely loose more customers in Kerala as people taken connection in names of their known ones,they has no way but to surrender their connection while private operators helps their customers in tweaking the identity.


    1. Yes, the Aadhaar of the current customer will be updated in the database. That is the reason this drive is carried out and only Aadhaar holders can use mobile or link to your kith and kin Aadhaar id

  3. This linking is a cumbersome process as the customer has to go to BSNL outlet / agent in person .The linking should be made like that in the case of PAN with Aadhaar or Ban account with Aadhaaar.

  4. re-verification process must be simplified.

  5. Life in Qs. Earlier chnging old money Before BANK/ ATM
    then linking PAN with AADHAR nd updating AADHRA to match PAN.
    Now linking AADHAR to mob nos. Ja ebery beginning will be difficult. Later in India no has will be known with their names rather with AADHAR NO. Good move. People will be writing down thrir No on cloth to recognize them.
