Facts Check Analysis: The new fake message viral this days, especially on the whatsapp, rumors inclusion of  1800 in name of UIDAI, automatically added in your phone contact list.

UIDAI issued a press statement over a thread of tweets on August 3, 2018 stating that the number 1800-300-1947 is ‘outdated and invalid toll free number, it said

In the wake of some media reports on default inclusion of UIDAI’s outdated & invalid Toll free no. 1800-300-1947 in contact list of Android phones. It is clarified that, UIDAI has not asked or communicated to any manufacturer or service provider for providing any such facility whatsoever. It is emphasised that the said 18003001947 is not a valid UIDAI Toll free number and some vested interest are trying to create unwarranted confusion in the public. Our valid Toll free number is 1947 which is functional for more than the last two years. UIDAI has reiterated that it has not asked or advised anyone including any telecom service providers or mobile manufacturers or Android to include 18003001947 or 1947 in the default list of public service numbers.

  

The Cellular Operators Association of India also tweeted from its official handle to say that the telcos have nothing to do with the inclusion of the number.

Indeed all the shared messages related to the deletion of the numbers and UDAI which are viral on the social media is fake.
