Reliance becomes the first telecom operator in the country to test the concept of Aadhar authentication from a non company owned multi brand small retail outlet. Reliance Communications is ready to launch the services across all circles post the necessary guidelines issued by DOT. Mobile customers can soon walk into any retailer in the country with their respective Aadhar card, post which the retailer can share the customer's Aadhar profile details along with the biometric authentication details online with UIDAI server for real time authentication of the identity of the customer. Post this authentication, the customer details can be fetched online from UIDAI server and the customer mobile connection can now be processed with Reliance Communications for immediate activation. The customer verification process is thus undertaken through Aadhar authentication. Commenting on this occasion, Mr. Anurag Prashar, President – Services, Reliance Communications said, "We are delighted to be the first telecom operator in the country to test the concept of Aadhar authentication process at non company owned multi brand small retail outlets successfully. This service is completely ready for national roll out and we are confident that RCOM will lead the industry in reaching out to every nook and corner of the country. This online paperless process for instant customer verification and subsequent mobile activation at all multi brand small retail outlets is set to provide a compelling new experience in terms of speed and convenience to our customers nationally."

Reliance is the first telecom operator in the country to test the concept of Aadhar authentications from a non company owned multi brand small retail outlet. These non company owned multi brand small retail outlets spread across the country accounts for 90% of the new sim cards sold every month.
