On delinking of Aadhaar and phone number

Dear Madam,
I recently tried to download e-Aadhaar from the UIDAI website, as I never got the hard copy of my Aadhaar. I had previously downloaded the Aadhaar this way, but the last time I tried, I couldn’t receive the OTP to complete the download process. It seems, somehow, the number that was linked to my Aadhaar was delinked. I, therefore, had to visit an Aadhaar correction office and update the same number again. Is that some kind of scam happening where people’s phone number is getting delinked and people are being charged for updating that again? I had to pay Rs 150 for that.
Prasanjit, Dimapur
