Aadhaar has become one of the most important documents in our life. It is needed while opening a bank account or getting a WiFi connection or for other purposes. As it is required for almost every purpose, it can be misused and we may remain unaware that our Aadhar card has been misused by someone.

So, to find out if anyone has used your Aadhar card to get a SIM card, the government has launched a portal. With the help of this, you will be able to check how many SIMs are registered in your name and how many are still active.

The Department of Telecom has launched a portal named TAFCOP (Telecom Analytics for Fraud Management and Consumer Protection), in which you can easily find out how many mobile numbers are registered in your name.

In 2018, the department increased the number of per capita mobile connections to 18. This includes 9 SIMs for normal mobile usage and the remaining 9 SIMs for M2M (Machine to Machine) communication.

Step 1: Visit tafcop.dgtelecom.gov.in
