    Although it is not mandatory link your bank account with Aadhaar number, you will have to do if you want to receive certain benefits from the central or state government. These include LPG subsidy and social security pension etc.

    If you want to link your bank account with Aadhaar, then you can either submit a copy of your Aadhaar card at your home branch or link it online on the bank's website.

    However, even if you have submitted your Aadhaar details at your branch there is still a possibility that the linkage between the two was not done correctly by the bank or it may be that the bank has not linked Aadhaar with your account because they have misplaced your details.

    1. Visit the Aadhaar website - www.uidai.gov.in

    People have multiple bank accounts and multiple mobile numbers.
    It will be easier if UIDAI can create a one page URL, where one can link all his mobile numbers and all his bank account after OTP verification. This way, we do not have to provide our AADHAR no. to multiple vendors and at the same time safely upload all our private data ourselves.
