The government has made it compulsory for all bank account holders to link their Aadhaar number with their bank accounts. With Aadhaar seeding, eligible citizens can receive multiple benefits and subsidies such as pension, MNREGA wages, LPG subsidy, student scholarships, and other benefits directly to their bank accounts. If you hold a Kotak Mahindra Bank savings account, there are several ways you can get your Aadhaar number updated with your bank.
If you choose the offline method, you would need the photocopy of your Aadhaar card for submission and the original Aadhaar Card for verification. While in the online method, document submission is not required.
