The Government extends the deadline for linking AADHAR No. with bank accountsYesterday I got the news. I thought it necessary to share with the Members of ISC. The Central Government has withdrawn the deadline to link AADHAR No. with bank accounts. In this connection, it is pertinent to recall that earlier the Government made it mandatory to liknk all bank accounts with AADHAR. For this purpose, the deadline was fixed to 31st December, 2017. Although the Government has withdrawn the earlier deadline, the new deadline has not yet been announced.
However, the Members may please note that the other deadlines relating to linking of AADHAR No. have not been changed. The deadline for linking AADHAR No. with PAN Card is 31st March, 2018. The deadline for linking AADHAR with Mobile No. is 6th February, 2018.
Personally I feel that we must link our AADHAR No. with bank accounts, mobile and PAN Card as early as possible, well before the deadline.
