How you can check the status of the Aadhaar card been linked with Bank account
If you are the person who has not linked your Aadhaar number with your bank account, the deadline for linking the Aadhaar number with bank account is March 31, 2018. For people who have not linked their Aadhaar number with the bank account, you’ve been asked to link your Aadhaar card through messages in SMS, net banking, and other mediums. If you have done this linking, you can check whether your Aadhaar has been linked to your bank account either by desktop or mobile phone. Let us explain you about how this is done.
If you want to check on your desktops, follow the below steps:
Go to Aadhaar’s official site “www.uidai.gov.in” and look for Aadhaar services at the bottom of the page. Click on “Check Aadhaar-Bank Account Linking Status” in the options listed. Now, it will ask you to enter your Aadhaar number, followed by the captcha text. An OTP will be generated and sent to your registered mobile number. After that, enter the OTP and click on ‘Login’ and you will be shown the status of Aadhaar linking with the bank account.
If you want to check on your Mobile phones, follow the below steps:
1) Dial *99*99*1# from your mobile. Then the interface will ask you to enter your Aadhaar number. Now enter your 12-digit Aadhaar number.
2) Once you are done entering, it will ask you to confirm whether the number you have entered is correct or you can change if any mistake is being done and press confirms to go ahead.
3) Once you confirm, a message appears, which shows the name of the bank to which the Aadhaar card number is linked.
This service is available only to those whose mobile number is linked to Aadhaar. For those who have to still update their current mobile number with the Aadhaar card in order to get the OTP, they will have to go to the nearest Aadhaar centre and get the information updated. The mobile number details cannot be updated online.
However, there is a problem that if you have multiple bank accounts, the above method will show you only the last bank with which you linked your Aadhaar number. For example, you have an account in ICICI Bank, Axis, SBI, and the last bank with which you linked was Axis, then it will show you only Axis account status. For other bank accounts, you will have to connect with the individual bank to check on the status.
