"For all eKYC asks for by telecom specialist organizations (TSP), UIDAI as a major aspect of constrained KYC reaction will share statistic information that is name, sex, date of birth and address alongside confront photograph and UID token. Aadhaar number won't be imparted to the TSP by UIDAI as a component of restricted KYC reaction," DoT said in its round.
