COAI Statement on DoT’s Notification on the Implementation of Virtual ID

“Telecom operators always ensure the privacy of their subscribers and compliance with the requirements issued by the DoT. The DoT’s circular dated June 12, 2018 is based on UIDAI instructions which is another step to ensure the customers’ privacy. Telcos are making best efforts to make the necessary updates in their IT systems to implement the suggested changes by July 1, 2018. As per the new Circular, the subscribers can choose to either provide Aadhaar number for verification or generate a Virtual ID for the same, in return UIDAI will provide a unique UID Token to the TSPs. The Aadhaar number of the subscribers will not be saved in either of the cases with the TSPs. We believe that this step will provide convenience and confidence to the subscribers to get an authentic verification conducted without having the fear of giving their Aadhaar number.” – Rajan S Mathews, DG, COAI
