Checking whether your email or mobile number is seeded with Aadhaar is now easy as the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has come up with an important update. UIDAI has allowed residents to verify their mobile numbers and email IDs seeded with their Aadhaar.

The news has certainly brought relief to the people as they were not aware of which of their mobile numbers was seeded with Aadhaar.

As per a PIB report, many 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.

Steps To Verify

One just needs to click on the ‘Verify email/mobile Number’ feature on the official website or through mAadhaar App.

It has been developed for the residents to verify that their own email/mobile number is seeded with their respective Aadhaar. The feature gives confirmation to residents that email/mobile numbers under his/her knowledge are only seeded to respective Aadhaar.

It also notifies the resident in case a particular mobile number is not linked, and informs the resident to take necessary steps to update the mobile number, if they wish so.

“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,” the PIB report said.

In case a resident does not remember the mobile number, she/he has given during enrolment they can check the last three digits of the mobile on Verify Aadhaar feature on the Myaadhaar portal or mAadhaar App.
