Did you know you can verify your mobile number or email address registered with Aadhaar online? Quoting of Aadhaar - the 12-digit identification number issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) - is now mandatory for carrying out many essential tasks. These range from operating a bank/Post Office account, filing an income tax return (ITR), obtaining a PAN (Permanent Account Number) or investing in savings schemes such as PPF (Public Provident Fund) and NSC (National Savings Certificate), to name a few. It is therefore paramount to verify your Aadhaar number or UID (Unique Identity Number). The UIDAI, the issuer of the 12-digit UID and the Aadhaar card, has provided many online tools on its portal - uidai.gov.in. One of these tools enables users holders to verify details associated with their Aadhaar card such as mobile number and email.
