A digital process to be launched for issuance of SIM cards

Government is planning to make a digital platform to issue SIM cards of mobiles.

This step is taken for customers to have a hassle free process.

The process of issuing a SIM online is simple-

A live photograph of the applicant will be taken along with latitude, longitude & time stamp.

The photo of his ID like AADHAR or Voter ID will be captured.

An OTP will be sent to SIM card agent for authentication and the SIM will be issued.

Customers will also be able to de-link their AADHAR, if they need to.
