Looking for a way to verify all the phone numbers saved with your Aadhaar card? This is possible through a portal launched by the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) that allows individuals to check how many phone numbers are registered to their Aadhaar number. The portal works initially for consumers in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. It is basically useful if you want to block all connections that no longer exist. Phone numbers registered with your Aadhaar number can also help you speed up the Know Your Customer (KYC) process required by banks and various government authorities.
Point launched the Telecom Analytics for Fraud Management and Consumer Protection (TAFCOP) portal in April to allow telecom subscribers to search all the phone numbers registered on their Aadhaar number. The portal is currently only available in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, although the Point mentioned that it would soon be extended to all consumers nationwide.
According to the FAQ page, the TAFCOP portal is designed to “help subscribers check the number of mobile connections working on their behalf and take the necessary steps to regularize their additional mobile connections, if any”.
The DoT has guidelines which allow up to nine mobile connections to be recorded for each subscriber. After exceeding this number, each new connection purchased under the same name will be considered a bulk connection intended for commercial purposes. You must therefore check the settlement from the TAFCOP portal. Here is how it is possible.
