In order to update your Aadhaar details with your Vodafone number, you must visit your nearest company store, said a customer care service executive of the firm. All that you need is your Aadhaar card. The Aadhaar details must match with those of the person in whose name the SIM was issued, the executive added.
Sources told news agency Indo-Asian News Service that linking of Aadhaar and mobile is being done as per the orders of the Supreme Court passed in February this year in the Lokniti Foundation case and all SIM cards have to be verified with Aadhaar within a year from the date of judgement, with all unlinked phones to be deactivated thereafter (after February 2018).
