The Government of India has been encouraging people to link the Aadhaar card and the bank account since a long time. The linking has become mandatory and everyone should link their existing bank account with Aadhaar without fail. The Canara Bank has opened up multiple channels to facilitate the customers to link the Aadhaar and bank account.
Here are the various methods by which you can link your Aadhaar card with the Canara Bank account easily.
You must have the internet banking access for the Canara Bank with valid user id and password to use this feature.
Log in to the official website of the Canara Bank for the internet banking (https://www.canarabank.in/)
Use your user id and password and navigate to the home page
A separate link has been provided on the home screen for the Aadhaar Registration with the bank account. Click on that link.
You will be taken to a new page and put your Aadhaar number in the box. Re-enter it to confirm and click on submit.
You will be given an auto generated slip for the acceptance.
Once the Aadhaar Card is linked to the Bank account, the customer would receive an SMS or email in the registered mobile number or email.
Don’t have the internet banking access or unable to use it? Well, the offline channel can be helpful for you. You must carry the original Aadhaar card and the copy of it.
