Global Immigration Update – India
India: Deadline extended for linking Aadhaar Number
The initial 31st March 2018 deadline has been recently extended by the Supreme Court of India for residents to link their Aadhaar numbers to their bank account, mobile SIM card and Permanent Account Number (PAN).
This is due to the ongoing verdict decision regarding the validity of the biometric identification number and its enabling law.
However, it has also been announced that the requirement of Aadhaar for opening new bank accounts will continue. This is because only the deadline for linking the number to existing bank accounts has been extended.
