As per the government notification, it is now mandatory to link the Aadhaar card with all the saving accounts. The same is also applicable to the India Post bank Account as well.
If the same is not done then the account will be blocked and you might not be able to access the funds in your post office bank account. You can link the Aadhaar card with the post bank account through three ways and we have listed the information about the same in this article.
Linking Aadhaar Card by Visiting the Post Office
This method is for the people who do not have an ATM or for the people who do not have Internet Banking. The account holder needs to visit the bank branch and submit a copy of the Aadhaar card along with the passbook along with the form to link the Aadhaar card and the bank account. Once the documents are submitted, the account holder will receive an acknowledgment slip and process will be completed in about 5 to 7 working days. The account holder will receive an SMS confirmation about the same.
Linking Aadhaar Card through ATM
If you have an ATM card of the post office bank account then you can go to the nearest ATM and swipe your card. In the main menu, select other services and select Aadhaar Seeding. On the next screen, you will be asked to enter your Aadhaar Number. Enter the Aadhaar card number and click on submit button. You will now receive an ATM slip confirming the linkage between the Aadhaar Card and the Bank Account.
Linking Aadhar Card through Internet Banking
If you have access to internet banking then you can also link the Aadhaar card with the internet banking. The first step of the process is to navigate to the internet banking website and then use your user credentials to login to the account. You can access the net banking by clicking here. Once you have accessed your account, click on registration of Aadhaar number. On the next page, enter your Aadhaar number and click on save button.
