New Delhi [India], Dec 17 (ANI): Amid the extension of the deadline to link one's Aadhaar details with a number of platforms, including mobile numbers, The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has reportedly provisionally stalled the same for Bharti Airtel and Airtel Payments Bank.
The decision comes in the wake of accusations and complaints of Bharti Airtel allegedly using the aforementioned verification process to open payments bank accounts of its customers without their knowledge or consent. It was reported that over 20 lakh customers had received enormous amounts of money in their Airtel bank accounts, which were allegedly operational without their knowledge.
The body has also taken heed of allegations of such payments bank accounts being linked to receive LPG subsidy.
Further details are awaited. (ANI)
