The UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India), which oversees Aadhaar Card related services, has issued a warning to citizens. This warning is about a type of fraud. UIDAI has said that if someone promises to make you an Aadhaar Center Operator by taking money, then do not get caught in that.
UIDAI has said in the tweet that the Aadhaar operators are appointed registrars, not UIDAI. To become an Aadhaar center operator one has to contact the registrar of his area. Therefore, if someone promises you that he will take you money and make you an Aadhaar Center Operator, then do not get into his deception. Simultaneously, call his 1947 number and lodge it.
Operators are appointed by Registrars, not UIDAI. To become an operator contact the registrar of your region. Get registrar’s info here https://t.co/tzFyse2jOP. If someone promises to make you an operator in return for money, call 1947 ®ister your complaint pic.twitter.com/MN8Ks9ag0T

IVRS support available on the helpline 24 hours
1947 is the Aadhaar helpline number, which is toll free and available throughout the week. IVRS (Interactive Voice Response System) support 24 × 7 is available on this helpline. At the same time, calls can be made on 1947 from Monday to Saturday from 7 am to 11 pm and from 8 am to 5 pm on Sundays to get answers from Aadhaar related queries.
If the operator overcharges the charge ..
In reply to a user on Twitter, UIDAI has also said that if any Aadhaar enrollment agency asks you for more than the charge fixed for any kind of Aadhaar updation, then you can also file a complaint against that agency/operator. Citizens can file a complaint online by visiting https://resident.uidai.gov.in/file-complaint. UIDAI has provided information on its website that how much is the charge for which service related to Aadhaar and which service is free.
