The UIDAI has restored Bharti Airtel’s authorisation to conduct Aadhaar-based verification of its mobile subscribers subject to riders, sources said. The Unique Identification Authority of India has not lifted the ongoing suspension on Airtel Payments Bank’s eKYC licence, sources privy to the development told PTI.
