Telcos Have Ignored SC Verdict, Still Using Aadhaar For Issuing Mobile SIM Cards

Leading telecom companies are using Aadhaar-based eKYC for issuing mobile SIM cards almost a month after the Supreme Court prohibited its use.

Several telecom company executives told TOI that the eKYC or Aadhaar’s biometric facility “is still being used” as it is “one of the most convenient and user-friendly ways to on-board customers without the hassle of paperwork or time-consuming authentication”.

They cited the absence of specific instructions from the department of telecom (DoT) on the matter and added that they will continue to use the eKYC Aadhaar until they are explicitly barred by the government.Click Here: Crystal Palace Shop
