How to Link your Mobile Number with Aadhar Card

Aadhaar has become a comprehensive document for identification and utilisation of public and private sector services in India. The government has advised the citizens to link their Aadhaar Card number with mobile numbers, bank accounts and PAN card to facilitate the promise of mobile governance.

In this digital age, when everyone is moving towards 4G smartphones and online ecosystems, it makes sense to link the Aadhaar number with your mobile number. There are numerous advantages to it as well. For example, you can e-verify your ITR filings through a one-time password sent to your registered mobile number linked with Aadhaar. Moreover, nowadays you are also allowed to update your personal information listed with UIDAI through mobile OTP verification. Downloading the e-Aadhaar Card also requires mobile OTP verification.

So what’s the process for linking your Aadhaar Number to your mobile?


There are two processes to link your mobile number with Aadhar Card.

  • First time linking of your mobile number with Aadhaar
  • You have switched to a new number and want to update it in the Aadhaar database


Since online authentications require OTP verification and you don’t have a registered number with UIADI, linking mobile number first time with Aadhaar has to be done offline.

Here are the steps to do it.

  • Visit your nearest Aadhaar Registration Centre and get the Aadhar Update/Correction form from there. You can also download and print the form from the UIDAI website.
  • Fill in your details and mobile number you want to register and submit it at the centre. If you don’t want any additional updates to your Aadhaar data then mention that only mobile number has to be updated.
  • You will need to submit a photocopy of your Aadhaar Card and a photocopy of an alternative ID proof such as Voter Card, Driving License, Passport or PAN card. Click here for a complete list of documents accepted by UIDAI.
  • After that the Aadhaar Centre will ask you to verify your biometrics which were recorded when you registered for the Aadhaar Card.

After successful verification you will be given an acknowledgement slip and the mobile number will be linked to your Aadhaar number in 2 to 5 days. The UIDAI website says it takes up to 10 days but normally it doesn’t take that long.

For updating your mobile number listed in the Aadhaar database, the process can be completed online. However, you will need the existing registered number to be working for doing so.

Here is how to do it.

  • Visit the UIDAI website and go to the Aadhar Self Service Portal.
  • Enter your Aadhaar number and complete the Captcha verification to request an OTP.
  • This is important! The OTP will be sent to the number you linked first time with Aadhaar. Once you enter the OTP, you will be redirected to a new page and asked to update the desired details.
  • Select the Mobile Number Field and enter the new number you want to link with Aadhaar. Click on submit.

So that’s the complete process for linking your new number with Aadhaar. If you are also looking for a new 4G smartphone to get the most out of your 4G sim card, visit us at and take your pick from our extensive list of Android 4G Smartphones.
