How to Link Aadhaar with Vodafone Mobile Number?

The concept of assigning every citizen of India a unique Aadhaar number was introduced by the Government of India. It authorized UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India) to initiate and oversee the process. Next, the Central Government initiated the idea of linking Aadhaar number to services like LPG, mobile numbers, banking, etc. Hence, Vodafone being one of the leading telecommunications service providers globally enables linking Aadhaar with Vodafone number.

Linking one Vodafone number to Aadhaar does not imply that the Aadhaar number of an individual is automatically linked to all his/her Vodafone mobile numbers.

Currently, as on November 2018, is it not compulsory for citizens of India and NRIs to link Aadhaar with Vodafone number.
