The government on Wednesday extended the deadline for linking Aadhaar with bank accounts by three months. The linkage now needs to be completed by March 31, 2018.

The Centre had earlier in the day withdrawn the notification which stipulated that the linking needed to take place by December 31, 2017.

A few months ago, the Union government had earlier made it mandatory for all bank accounts to be linked with Aadhaar.


It must be noted that all other deadlines to link Aadhaar with services remain unchanged.

Other Aadhaar linkage deadlines

The deadline to link the Aadhaar number with the Permanent Account Number (PAN) remains March 31, 2018.

Under the direction from the Department of Telecommunications (DoT), all telecom operators need to re-verify the numbers of existing prepaid and post-paid mobile users through the Aadhaar-linked KYC. The deadline remains February 6, 2018.

To avail social security and welfare schemes provided by the government, you need to provide your Aadhaar details to concerned authorities by December 31, 2017.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Supreme Court had said a five-judge Constitution bench would hear on December 14, the pleas seeking an interim stay on the Centre's decision directing mandatory linking of Aadhaar with various government schemes and welfare measures.
