Procedure for reverification of mobile connections for NRIs etc.
          High Commission has been approached by a number of NRIs/Overseas Indians regarding difficulties being faced in operating their mobile connections procured in India as the telecom operators are insisting on linking Aadhaar number with the mobile number.  As most of NRIs & OCIs do not possess Aadhaar Card, they are unable to link their Indian mobile number with the Aadhaar number.
