The ‘Verify Email/ Mobile’ feature is available on the mAadhaar app as well as UIDAI online portal. Through this new feature, users can confirm that it is their email ID and mobile number linked to their Aadhaar card.

The move comes after there were reports that verification OTP was sent to other mobile numbers in many cases.
