For all financial institutions, including banks, it has become mandatory to link and verify their accounts with Aadhaar of their customers. Previously, the last date to do so was December 31, 2017. Later on, the date has been extended to March 31, 2018.
Since the directive of the government announced in June, banks have been asking for Aadhaar card from their customers to link with their accounts. If you visit your nearest bank branch next time for any purpose or transaction, there are chances that they would ask you to updating your bank account with your Aadhaar card. If you have applied for your Aadhaar card but haven’t got it, they may even ask you for EID before doing any kind of transaction.
Even if you have submitted your Aadhaar to your branch, there are still chances that linking was not done properly by the bank or the bank has not linked Aadhaar to your account as they have missed your details.
Here’s the detailed step by step guide to figure out whether your Aadhaar is linked to your bank account or not.
