How to link your Aadhaar Card with your mobile number from home
The Department of Telecommunications had in a communication dated November 30, 2017 directed access service providers to allocate short code 14546 for the IVRS-based OTP authentication process for Aadhaar re-verification of mobile subscribers. March 31, 2018 is the deadline set by the Supreme Court for linking of Aadhaar with the mobile phone number.
Now you can link your Aadhaar card with your phone number through an Interactive Voice Response (IVR). You just have to make a call to the toll free IVR number and follow the instructions. Within 48 hours, your Aadhaar card will be linked to your mobile number.
