Vodafone have access to the Aadhaar Database

The identity of a customer is a big task for most service providers which includes Bank Sectors. Vodafone’s ASA model is designed such that to issue a new SIM card, only the 12 digit Aadhar number and fingerprints would be required, as opposed a bunch of documents that have to be authenticated. This model is basically a pilot which would run for 15 days at two of Vodafone centres, in Vijaywada and Hyderabad, with an objective of issuing 3000 SIM Cards. If it works out, all other outlets of Vodafone can use the same to ensure the consumers an easier process to get a phone connection.
