E-SIM is the digital version of the standard mobile SIM. There is no need to physically install it in the SIM slot of the mobile. This technology digitally connects your mobile to the network of your choice. For this, users will have to subscribe to the mobile network as a recharge. First you have to visit the network operator’s outlet and submit your credentials. Your phone will then receive a code from the network operator. With that code an e-SIM profile will be created on your mobile. This will allow you to access the services of the subscribed network company. Some network operating companies allot e-SIM to the user without the need to visit the outlet. Currently, Airtel, Jio and Vodafone Idea provide e-SIM services in India.
