How to change mobile number registered with Aadhaar card (Aadhaar registered mobile number)
A change in the registered mobile number can be made by visiting the nearest Permanent Enrolment Centre, an executive on the UIDAI helpline 1947 said. The Aadhaar holder has to be present with the Aadhaar card at the Permanent Enrolment Centre for a change in the registered mobile number, the executive said. No other document is required, the executive added.
Previously, the UIDAI provided a facility on its self-service portal – uidai.gov.in – that enabled Aadhaar holders to request a change in the registered mobile number, email and address, among other basic details, online.
The UIDAI has shared helplines 1947 (toll free) and email@example.com for queries relating to Aadhaar, according to the UIDAI website.
COMMENTSThe UIDAI currently provides several online tools for Aadhaar holders or applicants. One of these tools enables an Aadhaar applicant to check the status of his or her Aadhaar application using the Enrolment ID (EID).
The top of your acknowledgement slip contains the 14-digit enrolment number (for example, 1234/12345/12345) and the 14-digit date and time (in format dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm:ss) of enrolment. These 28 digits together form your Enrolment ID (EID), according to the UIDAI website.
In case you have lost your EID, you can Retrieve Lost EID/UID. For this you will require your registered mobile number which you had declared at the time of your Enrolment, the UIDAI portal mentions.
