The Department of Telecommunications launched a new web portal that allows users to check their mobile phones or more specifically, the numbers issued in their name. This initiative is called ‘Telecom Analytics for Fraud Management and Consumer Protection (TAFCOP). Users can access this site by entering an email address associated with one’s Aadhar Card into www.[domain].in; once there you will be able to see all active subscriptions connected via FM&CP
The government has created this portal to ensure citizens’ personal information security. Mobile numbers that are no longer in use or belong to someone else can be reported to prevent fraud on their Aadhaar card-related facilities.
The DoT is committed to ensuring that every Indian citizen has access, representation, and opportunity within its borders. As such they have taken several measures for the proper allocation of telecom resources by TSPs which protect their interests in reducing frauds while also allowing individual subscribers up to nine mobile connections per registered identity.”
The government has developed this website to help subscribers check the number of mobile connections working in their name and take necessary action for regularizing additional ones if any. However, service providers are primarily responsible for handling Customer Acquisition Forms (CAF).
Here is the step-by-step process of how you can check to see and verify the mobile numbers registered against your Aadhaar card:
Step 1: Visit the TAFCOP website at (https://tafcop.dgtelecom.gov.in/)
Step 2: Enter your mobile number and click on request OTP (One-Time Password)
Step 3: The Department of Telecommunications will then send you the OTP to the mobile number via SMS so that you can validate yourself and sign in to the portal.
Step 4: Sign in to the portal.
Step 5: You will be redirected to a page where you can view all the different mobile numbers that have been linked to your specific Aadhaar card. In the event you see numbers that you don’t recognize or have since been out of use by you, you can report them so that they can be removed from your Aadhaar card.
