Aadhaar is to be mandatorily linked with bank accounts by March 31, 2018, a deadline set by the Supreme Court. The top court has set March 31, 2018 as last date for linking of Aadhaar number – the 12-digit Unique Identity Number (UID) issued by the UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India) – with various services and welfare schemes, including mobile phone (SIM). Besides, March 31, 2018 is also the last date to link insurance policies and mutual fund holdings with Aadhaar, among other financial products and services. State Bank of India, India’s largest bank has opened multiple channels to facilitate seeding of Aadhaar into bank accounts for their customers.
