Telco writes to UIDAI, seeks more time to submit Aadhaar eKYC 'exit plan'
Updated : October 16, 2018 07:42 AM IST
The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) had asked telecom companies to submit, by October 15, a plan to stop using Aadhaar for customer authentication after the Supreme Court imposed curbs on the use of the 12-digit unique ID number.
While all the operators remained tight-lipped on the issue, a source said that one of the large operators has written to the UIDAI saying it needs more time for sharing an exit plan for migration to an alternate process which should be done in consultation with the DoT.
