Extension of Aadhaar-mobile linkage deadline a relief: COAI

The extension will be "good news" also for consumers as it will provide them more time for compliance.

The extension of deadline for linking Aadhaar with mobile connections to March 31, 2018, provides an immediate relief to both telecom operators and consumers, industry body COAI said today.

"We are pleased that the timeline has been extended. We were facing challenges in complying with the earlier deadline given the volume (of telecom subscribers)," COAI Director General Rajan Mathews told PTI.
