(e) if not, the reasons for making the process complicated; and
(f) (f) other measures to ease the process of Aadhaar linking with NSDL?
The Minister of State in the Ministry of Finance
(a) to (e) As reported by the PFRDA, for seeding of Aadhaar, OTP is sent only on the Mobile Number registered with UIDAI data base. Accordingly, OTP is sent to the Mobile Number registered with UIDAI and not to the Mobile Number registered under National Pension System (NPS). However, to enable the subscribers whose mobile number is not registered with UIDAI, an option is available where the subscriber can approach the associated Nodal Office to seed his/her Aadhaar under NPS.
(f) Under NPS, the subscriber can seed his/her Aadhaar online in the Central Record keeping Agency (CRA) system. In addition, the subscriber has an option to approach the associated Nodal Office to seed his/her Aadhaar under NPS.
