The Supreme Court has extended indefinitely the March 31st deadline for compulsory linking of Aadhaar with bank accounts and mobile phones. The SC said that its interim order on not insisting on an Aadhaar, except for giving subsidies, will remain in force till the five-judge bench passes its judgment on petitions challenging the constitutional validity of the Aadhaar.
It is good to link your bank account with Aadhaar as soon as possible. Already more than 80% of bank accounts have been linked to Aadhaar. In this blog, we will discuss some important points to keep in mind while linking Aadhaar to your bank account.
The first thing UIDAI has said is “Never share your Aadhaar or bank account details with anyone claiming to offer Aadhaar linking services over a call.” “No one can call you to ask for Aadhaar or bank details on the pretext of Aadhaar linking… This is most likely a phishing call. Do not share your details,” stressed the UIDAI.
To help customers link Aadhaar with bank accounts, banks have opened many channels such as ATM, online and even SMS-based facilities in a few cases.
You can visit the official website of your bank to link Aadhaar to the bank account. For instance: State Bank of India (SBI) allows its customers to link their Aadhaar to a bank account through onlinesbi.com and its internet banking portal.
You can also link your Aadhaar to the bank account by accessing bank ATMs. For instance, you can access SBI's ATM to link Aadhaar to the bank account. After entering your ATM PIN you should select "Service – Registrations" and under this, you have to select "Aadhaar Registration". Then you should enter required details to complete the process. Customers can also link Aadhaar with the bank account by visiting a bank branch along with a copy of Aadhaar.
