Have you checked if the mobile number you gave in your Aadhaar application is fed correctly? Aadhaar, a 12-digit identity number based on biometrics data, is to be quoted mandatorily for many tasks as per latest rules. It is advisable to ensure correct contact information has been fed with the UIDAI or Unique Identification Authority of India. The UIDAI, which issues Aadhaar numbers, has provided online tools that enable verification of details like mobile number and email registered with Aadhaar. Aadhaar-PAN linking is now mandatory for filing income tax returns. If it has not been linked, your return will not be processed. August 31 is the deadline set for doing so.

Among various tools given on the UIDAI website - uidai.gov.in - is the 'Verify Email/Mobile Number' tool. "This feature can be used to verify email address and mobile number that has been declared during enrolment or latest successful processed update request, whichever is later," reads a message on the UIDAI portal.
