Is it possible to add mobile number in aadhar card without OTP?
Yes it is, aadhar card is only available for Indian residents. This all is managed by Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) in India. Apart from the 12 digit unique number; Aadhar Card carries the Card holder’s biometric and demographic information. Although Aadhaar has quite a number of utility properties, it does have its drawbacks. The information provided at the time of making the card, is quite essential. Hence, in case any one of these important details are lost or changed; it is quite problematic for the Aadhaar Card holder to get it back on the right track. But it can be done with a few efforts on our own behalf. There is a misunderstanding that people can change their registered mobile number without the use of OTP. Well, for your information, it isn’t true. OTP number is quite important when it comes to your mobile number. So changing it online without OTP is not possible. However, you can follow an offline method to do changes in terms of your lost mobile number.
