Telecom operators are continually informing their customers to re-verify their mobile numbers using Aadhaar. Now, Idea Cellular has come up with a new scheme. Idea cellular is now offering rewards to the customers who link their mobile number to Aadhaar earlier than needed.
If an Idea customer verifies his number before 24 November, he will get paytm vouchers worth of Rs 250. The eligible customers are promised to receive the voucher code before 29th of November. Customers can use this paytm voucher money for booking movie tickets.
Also, there is still no word on the validity of these offered movie vouchers. The number re-verification method should be done using the biometric verification to avail this paytm offer. Idea cellular won’t be providing a voucher to customers who verify their numbers using any other method. A total of Rs 20,000 worth movie vouchers are up for grabs as per Idea Cellular.
February 6, 2018, is the last date to re-verify your number for any telecom operator. Your connection will be terminated if not verified before the given date.
UIDAI (Unique Identity Authority of India) has also recently approved three new more straightforward methods of telecom operators to re-verify numbers. These three methods are especially helpful for old and sick people. From 1st December 2017, the telecom subscribers can use these three ways to verify their numbers. The three mentioned methods include IRIS method, One Time Password (OTP) and App-based method. However, for now, only biometric/fingerprint verification is a valid process to re-verify your number.
The government of India also ordered the telecom operators to stop sending spam messages and inform their customers about the last date of verification. The telecom services are trying their best to get their re-verified customers soon. For now, you can head over to the nearest Idea retail output to initiate the process of re-verification.
