Reliance Jio to block unverified SIM cards?
Reliance Jio may soon have several SIM blocked due to non-verification of the SIM cards, as per media reports.
Those customers who have not duly filled their E-KYC may be the ones at loss.
Meida reports also said that Jio users are being sent messages on their number for getting the E-KYC done.
You can call 1977 from your Jio SIM to complete the tele-verification process.
However, if you have opted for eKYC option using your Aadhaar Card to activate the SIM, you need not go through the Tele-verification process.
You do not need any other document to complete the e-KYC process other than your Local Aadhaar ID.
Be careful to submit your local Aadhaar ID where you are applying for a Jio SIM card.
For example, Aadhaar ID issued in Maharashtra will be treated as a local Aadhaar ID for Mumbai, Pune or any other cities/towns/districts within Maharashtra.
Aadhaar IDs issued in any other state will be treated as non-local Aadhaar in these regions.
Media reports also say that Reliance Jio began scrutinising the SIM cards from April 1 and messages were also being sent to users for the same.
