BSNL Launches Aadhar based e-KYC Service: No Need for Photocopies Anymore
State run telecom major Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has decided to launch Aadhdar based e-KYC service for immediate activation of new mobile connections issued to customers.
Many others telecoms in India are already providing mobile connections via the e-KYC route (e-Aadhaar verification). e-KYC not only makes the process of getting a new connection simple but also saves a lot of time. Typically you can get a new connection with the e-KYC process in a couple of minutes.
All that is needed is your Aadhaar number and your physical presence for verifying your fingerprint with the Aadhaar database.
“There will no longer be need to produce photocopies of identity proofs and photographs. The customer’s Aadhaar number and biometric impression will be taken, and if they match, all information will be collected from the Aadhaar database. The whole process takes only a few seconds,” said KL Jairam, District General Manager at BSNL Mysuru.
BSNL, in a twitter update last week, mentioned that it has already been rolled out in Maharashtra.
