Change Mobile in Aadhaar: Aadhaar Card is supposedly the World’s largest digital identity. It’s nothing but a 12 digit unique number issued by the Unique Identification Authority Of India ( UIDAI ) on account of the citizen’s biometric details such as fingerprint and iris scan along with the demographic information like address and Date Of Birth.
After all the hustle and bustle to link Aadhaar card with one’s mobile number, the Supreme Court of India has indefinitely extended the deadline, letting those who are lagging behind to heave a sigh of relief!

Well, fret not! Because what you all need is just the internet connection and the knowledge to follow up the procedures given below to update your mobile number. So get ready to update your information as you seat yourself in that cosy couch of yours with a Masala Chai to revive you!!
