Link your Aadhaar Card


The Government of India mandates linking Aadhaar to your bank account


The Prevention of Money Laundering (Maintenance of Records) Act, 2005 ("PML Act 2005") has been amended [as per Government of India Gazette No. 13012/79/2017/Legal-UIDAI (No. 4 of 2017)], with effect from June 1, 2017 to require Aadhaar for every bank account. All existing Bank accounts need to be linked with the respective Aadhaar number by 31st December, 2017, failing which the accounts will be blocked for use. The customer, who has not been assigned Aadhaar number as yet, needs to submit the proof of application towards enrollment for Aadhaar to the Bank.
