Aadhaar Services in New Delhi: The internet has now reached every little village and town in the country. Smartphones are now in everyone’s hands thanks to low-cost data and mobile phones. Anyone can simply access any tiny or large amount of information in only a few minutes. Despite this, there remains a sizable number of people who are unfamiliar with the Internet, for whom UIDAI offers a variety of services.

The UIDAI’s new SMS service

UIDAI has launched a number of Aadhaar-related services that may be accessed by SMS. You don’t need to go to the UIDAI website or download the Aadhar app to do this. There is no requirement for a smartphone for this; anyone with a simple feature phone that does not have internet access can use these services.

Users can utilize this service to acquire a variety of Aadhaar-related services, such as generating or retrieving Virtual ID, locking or unlocking their Aadhaar, and biometric locking and unlocking. All you have to do is send an SMS from your registered mobile phone to the hotline number 1947 for whichever facility or service you require.
