Here’s How to Verify If Someone Else Is Using Your Aadhaar-Linked Mobile Number


The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has launched a new website called Sanchar Saathi portal, which allows users to check all the mobile phone numbers associated with their Aadhaar number. The Telecom Analytics for Fraud Management and Consumer Protection (TAFCOP) portal is a part of this initiative, and it enables users to track the number of mobile connections linked to their Aadhaar number.

The TAFCOP portal offers a simple process for users to verify the phone numbers associated with their Aadhaar number. Users can visit the TAF-COP portal and enter their phone number. After selecting the ‘Request OTP’ tab, users will receive an OTP to validate the information. Once the OTP is entered, the website will display all the numbers associated with the Aadhaar number. Users can then report and block any numbers that are not in use or are no longer required.

According to DoT guidelines, individual mobile subscribers are allowed to register up to nine mobile connections in their name. If a subscriber has more than nine connections, they will receive an SMS notification and can take action through the TAFCOP portal.

This new initiative aims to provide users with greater control over their mobile connections and protect them from potential fraud or misuse of their documents. By utilizing the TAFCOP portal, subscribers can ensure that all the mobile connections linked to their Aadhaar number are legitimate and take necessary action to safeguard their information.
