BSNL introduces IVRS facility to link mobile with Aadhaar via 14546


BSNL has introduced IVRS-based Aadhaar verification system, which enables you to link mobile number with Aadhaar. If you are planning to link mobile number with Aadhaar, you just need to call the IVRS toll-free number 14546. The service is currently available only in select circles such as Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Kerala, and Punjab. You will be greeted with an automated message and you can select a language of your choice.

If you have doubts regarding whether your mobile number has been linked with Aadhaar, you can also make use of the facility. Hence, the IVRS toll-free number 14546 can be used not only to link mobile with Aadhaar but also for re-verification purposes.

The main purpose of the OTP-based IVRS verification method is to simplify the process involved in the verification of the mobile with Aadhaar. You need not have to visit nearest shop, operator or customer service center to link. Recently, mobile services providers such as Reliance Jio, Airtel, Vodafone India and Idea also introduced the same IVRS-based verification facility.

To link or reverify mobile with Aadhaar, you need to dial 14546 from your BSNL mobile number. You need to select the language as per your requirement. In the next step, you will have to provide the 12-digit Aadhaar number, which will be verified with the UIDAI database.

If the Aadhaar number is already linked with the relevant mobile number, BSNL will deliver an OTP to the mobile. You will have to provide the OTP code from within the IVRS call. If the OTP matched, then your mobile number will be linked with Aadhaar and a confirmation message will be delivered. If you haven’t linked the mobile with Aadhaar, then you will have to keep the Aadhaar number ready.

Apparently, BSNL also introduced a web-based application to enable NRIs and senior citizens to reverify mobile connections. The IVRS-based method as described above can also be used by NRIs since the menu has an option to select whether the concerned caller is an NRI or not.
