Bank of India does not provide online facility to link Aadhaar cards to their customer’s bank accounts as yet. They have also not activated this service through SMS or ATM.

By linking the Aadhaar card with their bank account, individuals will be able to receive the full benefit of any government public distribution scheme such as the LPG subsidy, the government pension scheme as well as many others. This will also reduce the chances of fraud or misappropriation of funds by other individuals since the money will be debited from the concerned individual’s registered account directly.

Please note that linking Bank of India bank account with Aadhar is NOT MANDATORY anymore and this facility/requirement is currently discontinued until further notice.
