I had purchased mtnl sim in August 2012 with only aadhar card. they did not ask me any other document.

One aadhar card has all 4 things. A unique number, your photo, your name and your address.Currently I dont think they verify fingerprints or retina :D

what i mean to say is that do you give a photocopy of your aadhaar card? or do they verify your identification by sending your UID Number to the central database for verification? what makes it different from voter id card?

currently its no different.just that you dont have to give two separate proofs. one for identity and one for address.

it's funny because voter id card has both as well. photo and address. and yet it would not be accepted as a proof for both. what makes aadhar different? i mean if you are just going to give a photocopy... how hard is it to fake information in that photocopy? how is it foolproof? idiocy.

well "by rule" when u submit photocopy - operators are supposed to match it with original. Also you are supposed to sign in photocopy.

so unless you fake original and operators miss to identify it as fake (or bribe them), u cant really fake ids.
