Go to the TAFCOP website or click on this link.
Enter the mobile number, click on Request OTP and then enter the OTP code.
Once you are logged in, you will see the list of numbers. There will be three options given beneath each number including ‘This is not my number’, ‘Not required’, and ‘Required’.
