Airtel, Vodafone starts Digital Verification for Instant Activation with Aadhaar based e-KYC solution



Following the notification by the Department of Telecom, Bharti Airtel has started rolling out Adhaar based e-KYC solution. This will allow users to get instant activation of Airtel Mobile connections. Also, users will be able to get an Airtel SIM card, without the need of any documents. Instead, they will be verified online based on the Adhaar card details.

So according to this, users who want to get an Airtel prepaid/postpaid mobile connection, need to submit their biometrics at the time of sale of the SIM card. And these details will be matched with UIDIA database. If everything goes fine, the connection will be instantly activated on the name of the customer. This is a pretty neat procedure to a get a SIM card so easily. Walk into a store and walk out with an activated mobile connection. Gone are days of submitting the documents and waiting days for it get activated. So now the question is, from when will these services are available?
