Your mobile will be not be disconnected; UIDAI-DoT curb rumour-mongering

The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) along with the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) issued a statement on Thursday dismissing rumours that if a mobile number that is Aadhaar KYC-compliant then it will be disconnected without fresh verification. The reports stated that around 50 crore mobile numbers are at risk of being disconnected. Refuting the report, the joint statement says that such reports try to create "unnecessary panic" by claiming that SIM cards procured on the basis of Aadhaar verification will be disconnected without additional fresh identification.
