Telcos want voluntary Aadhar for e-KYC

Amidst the never ending saga of Aadhaar judgement, now the telecom operators have appealed the government for finding ways to bring back Aadhaar-based customer verification which will comply with the Supreme Court judgement.

The operators have suggested that legal ways to bring Aadhaar back may be explored by either approaching the SC for allowing voluntary use of the Aadhaar number for e-KYC (know-your-customer)process or introducing a legislative framework.

The companies have added that if Aadhaar-based verification is brought back as an voluntary option then the companies will not need to introduce any other form of digital KYC process, which can be both time taking and costly.
