The Indian government has taken an initiative to ensure that all individuals with an Aadhaar Card must have them linked to their personal bank accounts. The subsidy schemes implemented in recent times require your Aadhaar Card to be linked to your bank account as it makes it easier to directly transfer amounts to your account. If you own an SBI Bank account, here is how you can go about linking it with your Aadhaar Card.
Linking Your Aadhaar Card to Your SBI Account through the Offline Mode
Prior to commencing the process of linking your Aadhaar Card to your bank account, you must have a few documents ready with you, including an original copy as well as photocopy of your Aadhaar Card, your SBI passbook and the Aadhaar Card linking form that can be downloaded from the SBI website.
You will have to fill in the information requested in the form by entering the name and address of your branch, your account number, your name and address as printed on the Aadhaar Card, and your Aadhaar / UID number. A photocopy of your Aadhaar Card must be attested with the form. After you have completed entering the necessary details, you will be required to pay a visit to your bank branch to submit the application to a representative or official of the bank.
The bank will accept the original Aadhaar Card along with a photocopy and will then commence the verification process, cross-checking the information you have provided with the information on the Aadhaar database. If the details match, the processing of your application will begin, and once that has been completed, you will receive a notification from the bank stating that your Aadhaar Card has been successfully linked to your SBI account.
Linking Your Aadhaar Card to Your SBI Bank Account through the Online Route
To link your Aadhaar Card to your SBI Bank Account, you will require access to internet banking. The first step is to login to your SBI Internet Banking account, then click on ‘My Accounts”, then hit “Link your aadhaar number”, and enter the required information before hitting the ‘Submit’ button. Your SBI account will then be linked to your Aadhaar Card and you will receive a confirmation from the bank stating the same.
