One of the most important things about Aadhaar card today is that it is almost linked to most of your documents the Bank account, gas subsidy, and mobile number for now. But, it is predicted to be linked to every official document and everything an Indian citizen has. This is done to centralize the whole system, every document, and information under a single system.
With these being told, it was made mandatory that every Indian citizen should link their mobile number with Aadhaar card. However, apart from this mobile number should be linked to the Aadhaar card because, for most of the things related to Aadhaar card, the government institutions send an OTP or confirmation to mobile number these days. This includes LPG subsidy, pensions, etc. Aadhaar linked mobile number is very important and useful when it comes to editing or updating Aadhaar card details because the server sends OTP to the mobile number. If you don’t have a registered mobile number, you will have to visit the Aadhaar enrolment center for every updating and editing.
