Nowadays, the Indian government is successfully delivering the Direct Benefit Transfer facility to crores of people under all types of government subsidies, such as the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS), etc. These subsidies are directly transferred into the beneficiaries’ bank accounts through Aadhaar verification, or Aadhaar-based OTP verification. Some other applications also need to be verified through Aadhaar, such as PAN-ITR, Mobile SIM, bank account, property registration, etc.
The Department of Telecommunications (DOT) issued a guideline for Indian people to link their mobile SIM with their Aadhaar, and 31/03/2018 was the deadline set by the Supreme Court of India for linking the Aadhaar with the mobile phone number. So that the Indian government not only identifies the owner of the mobile SIM linked to Aadhaar but also informs them about different types of Aadhaar-linked services and schemes.
Sometimes, you may need to change or update your mobile number linked to your Aadhaar. India Post Payments Bank (or IPPB) offers a new Mobile Banking facility to update your mobile number linked to your Aadhaar through its website: ippbonline.com (known as Doorstep Banking Service Request). The benefits of this facility are available for IPPB customers as well as for IPPB non-customers.
This article provides detailed information on IPPB Aadhaar mobile number update online and the advantages of linking your Mobile Number to the Aadhaar Card. So stay tuned and proceed further with this article without wasting any time.
Advantages of Linking an Aadhaar Card with Your Mobile Number
You can avail some benefits and security by linking your Aadhaar Card with an updated mobile number, such as:
- After the mobile number is updated, all the OTPs related to Aadhaar will be sent to this mobile number.
- Before delivering the benefits of different Aadhaar services, OTPs are sent to the beneficiaries’ registered mobile numbers, which helps to provide extra security to their Aadhaar.
Verification and identification of all mobile numbers linked to Aadhaar are necessary for the security of our country and for individuals also, which will help identify fraudsters and money-launderers who get SIM cards issued in the name of fake and real people as well, without their knowledge. They use them for committing various crimes.
However, Scammers can be easily identified and punished by law if every mobile number is verified and linked with an Aadhaar.
