Easy way of Re-verification of BSNL Mobile connection using Aadhar with just a phone call

February 20, 2018 • Srinivasu Chakravarthula

As we are aware re-verification of mobile SIM subscription by linking Aadhar is mandatory and needs to be done by 31st March, 2018. Here is a easy method for Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) subscribers.

One has to just dial 14516 from BSNL mobile phone and follow the instructions. It will ask you to choose a preferred language, then prompt you to enter 12 digit Aadhar number. Upon verification of Aadhar number, user will receive a one time password on the mobile number linked with Aadhar which needs to be entered when prompted.

In a few minutes or sometimes in a day, user will receive a text message asking confirmation if user has requested re-verification. User needs to reply with “Yes” to given number. That’s all process will be completed!

How to update AADHAR data?

June 1, 2016 • Srinivasu Chakravarthula

Though we thought AADHAR generation takes a longer time (as per opinions seen on social media), our e-AADHAR got ready within 15 days of application. Truly appreciate the speedy process.

But realized that my name got misspelled with one letter and that led us to look for ways how we can update the data. Even this process is simple. There are two ways one can update AADHAR data either online or offline. If you prefer to do it online, visit AADHAR Updation portal and select Update Aadhar data; that will bring up a form where you need to provide Aadhar number, enter CAPTCHA code and hit on Send OTP. That sends you a OTP to your registered mobile number. Enter OTP and hit on Login. Then you get a few options as to what you would like to update viz. Name, Address, Date of birth etc., select desired option and hit continue. Fill in correct data, hit continue that will ask you to review the corrected data. Once you have reviewed the data, click on proceed which will then ask you to upload required document proof. (Remember this has to be same as what you have originally submitted. Once document is uploaded, click on proceed that will ask you to choose one of too gateways namely Aegis and Karvy. Select one of them and click on Submit. That will submit your request and generates a Update Request Number (URN). This number will also be send to your registered mobile number and email address. Once your request is approved or rejected, you will receive a notification via SMS and email the status. If your request is rejected, notification will also include the reason and what you may have to do further.

Tip: if you need to update your spouse / father’s name, select “Address” option.

Alternatively, you may download Update Request form and send it by post along with document proof.

Aadhaar Enrollment Experience – mostly positive but room for improvement

May 16, 2016 • Srinivasu Chakravarthula

Finally, we got to enroll ourselves to get included with Unique Identification Authority of India at Indiranagar centre, Bangalore. Our experience is quite postive but needs improvement.

Staff at the centre are very helpful, accommodate people with disabilities to best possible extent. Even they have filled out part of the form when we missed, courteous enough to ask Hema if she is able to use her fingers. Centre has enough place to sit and staff were really managing their time well. They were also helping citizens with desired information. Only problem though that they may not correctly know the web address of online services portal.

One major problem that they should consider addressing is that the centre is located in 1st floor with about 15 steps. Building does not have lift and it would be impossible for those with wheel chair to enter and very difficult for women with pregnancy to enter the location.

Indeed happy about the behavior of staff.
