As you all know, the Aadhaar card has been made necessary in every work. Whether it is to link the Aadhaar card with a bank account or a PAN card.
The Government of India has now made the Aadhaar card necessary for taking a new SIM card, you can not buy a new SIM card without Aadhaar card.
If you purchased a SIM card using any other ID proof except the Aadhar card then you must link your Aadhaar with mobile number.
