As soon as DoT announced linking Aadhaar Number is mandatory for existing subscribers with their mobile number, new connections are now also issued with Aadhaar eKYC. Whenever you buy new connection now there is no need to provide any physical documents. The KYC can be completed by just quoting your 12 digit Aadhaar Number and by giving your fingerprint for verification. Once this verification is completed your eKYC would be successfully done for your new connection and your connection would get activated instantly.
What incase if a customer wants to get a new SIM connection but he or she doesn’t have Aadhaar Card. So in this case there is still traditional method with which you could get new SIM Card without Aadhaar Card by submitting your ID Proof and Address Proof documents. But later on once you get your Aadhaar Card you will have to get your Aadhaar Number linked with your connection, as skipping linking your Aadhaar Number with your Mobile Number would end up getting your number blocked.
So let’s get in detail with the process on how can I get new SIM Card without Aadhaar Card.
