Alerts: Aadhaar linking deadline extended

| Updated on March 10, 2018

The deadline for linking your Aadhaar with PAN and bank accounts has been extended till March 31, 2018. It was earlier fixed at December 31, 2017. The deadline for linking insurance policies, mobile phones, small savings schemes and mutual funds with Aadhaar has also been extended to March 31, 2018. This deadline could be a temporary one, though, as the Supreme Court will decide in January 2018 on whether making Aadhaar mandatory violates the right to privacy.
