Aadhaar card is one of most widely accepted identity proof in India and sometimes we lose it or misplace it and the only option left is to use the re-printed version of the card after downloading it for UIDAI website. 

Recently, UIDAI has launched a new service that allows users to get their lost or misplace Aadhaar card reprinted after paying a nominal amount of Rs 50. This reprinting fee includes GST and speed post charges as well. The reprinted Aadhaar card will be delivered to the speed post within five working days and will get delivered to the registered address

Here's what to do if you lose your Aadhaar card

Here's what to do if you lose your Aadhaar card
So, if you are also looking to get your lost Aadhaar card reprinted, here's our step-by-step guide. 

First things first:

You must know either your Aadhaar card number or Virtual Identification Number(VID) to raise the reprinting request. Also, you should have your phone number linked with your Aadhaar card to receive the OTP for verification purpose.

However, there's also a way to get Aadhaar reprinted with a non-registered phone number without being able to preview the details. 

Steps to follow: 

  • Open 'www.uidai.gov.in' on your PC browser 
  • Head to the 'Aadhar service' section and select 'Order Aadhaar Reprint (Pilot basis) option 
  • It will open a new tab on your browser, enter 12-digit Aadhaar number or 16-digit-Virtual Identification Number and security code (captcha) in the dialogue box. 
  • If you already have your mobile number registered, then click 'Send OTP' button. In case you have not registered your phone number, then tick the checkbox saying ' If you do not register your mobile number' and proceed
  • Enter the OTP received on your phone 
  • Check the details in the preview and if all the details are correct, click on 'Make Payment' option 
  • Make the payment using any mode of payment. 
  • Once done, you'll see a confirmation message on your screen and you'll also receive a message on your phone containing SRN number for future reference. 

Note: In case you have not registered your phone number, hit the checkbox mentioned in Step 4 and enter the mobile number to receive OTP. 

Tracking the status 

  • Head to www.resident.uidai.gov.in/check-aadhaar-reprint 
  • Enter the SRN number received on your phone followed by 12-digit AAdhaar number 
  • Fill in the security code and submit.

Offline Procedure:

You can also retrieve your Aadhaar card offline. To do so, just visit any nearby Aadhaar centre. You will be asked to enroll your fingerprint on the biometric device and you will get your Aadhaar card.

In case you are looking to get the hard copy of your original card, simply give a call at the toll-free number 1800-300-1947 or write an email to help@uidai.gov.in regarding your concerns. Alternatively, you can also download the mAadhaar app on your smartphone to download a digital copy of your Aadhaar card.

Ever since Aadhaar was introduced by UIDAI and Govt. of India, one of the basic premises was that it cannot be canceled.

Once an Aadhaar user has entered the system, he or she couldn’t leave that – only deactivation was possible. But now, as per fresh reports coming in, this may change soon.

Govt. will now soon allow Aadhaar users to ‘opt out’ from the system, and even delete all biometric data and other information. How was this made possible? Keep reading to find out..

Cancel Your Aadhaar - Govt. Will Soon Allow Aadhaar Users To ‘Opt Out’, Delete Biometric Data

This is for the first time that such a proposal has been sent to the Cabinet to cancel Aadhaar. Cancel Your Aadhaar – Govt.

Aadhaar Data Opt Out: How?

Based on feedback from security analysts and the public at large, Govt. had proposed to UIDAI and Law Ministry that children who turn 18 years should be given a choice: Whether they want Aadhaar or not.

As per the initial proposal, as soon as someone turned 18, he or she should be given 6 months to decide whether Aadhaar should be kept or not.

However, Law Ministry suggested that this choice to opt out should be provided to all citizens.

A senior official said: “The Ministry further recommended that the option to withdraw be made available to all citizens, and not be limited to a particular group,”

Opt Out Of Aadhaar If You Don’t Have PAN Card

Now, this proposal took another turn, when the Govt. suggested that the option to opt out from Aadhaar should be given to those, who have no PAN Card.

The proposal is now being studied by the Cabinet, and a notification would be issued soon: Whether everyone should be allowed to opt out from Aadhaar or only those who don’t have a PAN Card.

How To Delete Aadhaar Biometric Data?

The proposal also covers biometric and other data which resides with the UIDAI of Aadhaar holders.

If the Cabinet passes the proposal, then users would be able to delete their biometric data as well. This can be a huge boost to the advocates of privacy and data, who were concerned about how Aadhaar works.

In September, the Supreme Court had struck down Section 57 of Aadhaar Act, which prohibited private companies from enforcing Aadhaar data linkage with their services (read telecom operators), and to store any form of biometric data.

This proposal to cancel and opt-out from Aadhaar stems from this Supreme Court judgment and supports the theory that citizens should be able to decide whether they want their data with UIDAI or not.

In nutshell, we support this decision. Do share your views and opinions by commenting right here!

ऐसे लॉक करें अपनी आधार डिटेल्स, कोई नहीं कर पाएगा मिसयूज
नई दिल्ली। आधार को लेकर कई लोगों के मन में आशंका है कि कहीं इसकी डिटेल्स दूसरे के हाथ लगने पर दुरुपयोग तो नहीं होगा? बीते दिनों खबरें भी आई थीं कि बड़ी संख्या में लोगों की आधार कार्ड डिटेल्स सरकारी वेबसाइट से लीक हो गई हैं। बहरहाल, अब इसका इलाज भी कर दिया गया है।
UIDAI की वेबसाइट https://uidai.gov.in/ पर बायोमेट्रिक डिटेल्स को लॉक करने की सुविधा दी गई है। बायोमेट्रिक डिटेल्स में आंखों की पुतलियों की पहचान के साथ ही फिंगर प्रिंट और कार्डधारक की फोटो होती है। फिंगर प्रिंट और आंखों की पुतलियों की डिटेल्स सबसे अहम है। इनके माध्यम से ही कार्डधारक की पहचान होती है। इसके अलावा आधार में नाम, पता, उम्र, लिंग, मोबाइल नंबर और ईमेल ए़ड्रेस भी होता है।
लॉक करें और बचाएं अपनी अहम जानकारी
दरअसल, जैसे ही बायोमेट्रिक डिटेल्स को लॉक किया जाता है, कोई भी (यहां तक कि कार्डधारक भी) उसका उपयोग नहीं कर सकता है। अधिकारियों के मुताबिक, बायोमेट्रिक डिटेल्स पूरी तरह लॉक हो जाती है। यदि कार्डधारक को कहीं पहचान के लिए इस्तेमाल करना है तो वह कुछ देर के लिए अनलॉक कर सकता है। उपयोग होने के बाद यह डिटेल्स फिर लॉक की जा सकती हैं। यह बेहद आसान है। लॉक करने से आधार से मिलने वाली सुविधाओं पर कोई असर नहीं होगा।
हर 10 साल में करवाएं यह बदलाव
UIDAI की वेबसाइट पर कार्डधारकों को सलाह दी गई है कि वे हर 10 साल में अपनी बायोमेट्रिक डिटेल्स अपडेट कराएं। यदि किसी बीमारी, इनफेक्शन या अन्य कारण से बायोमेट्रिक डिटेल्स में बदलाव आया है, तो भी आधार अपडेट किया जाना जरूरी है।
ऐसे लॉक/अनलॉक करें अपनी बायोमेट्रिक डिटेल्स
  • आधार की वेबसाइट https://resident.uidai.gov.in/biometric-lock पर जाएं
  • अपना आधारकार्ड नंबर दर्ज करें
  • सेक्युरिटी कोड/कैप्चा दर्ज करें
  • मोबाइल पर ओटीपी मिलेगा (रजिस्टर्ड मोबाइल नंबर जरूरी है)
  • आधार को लॉक कर दें।
  • अनलॉक करने की भी यही प्रक्रिया है।

अब कोई आपके आधार का गलत इस्तेमाल नहीं कर सकता. क्योंकि अब UIDAI की वेबसाइट पर लॉग इन करके इसे सिक्योर बनाया जा सकता है. हाल ही में हजारों यूजर्स के आधार नंबर और पर्सनल जानकारी लीक होने की खबरें आई थीं. इसके बाद आधार की सुरक्षा को लेकर सवाल उठ रहे थे.

हालांकि, 'यूनीक आइडेंटिफिकेशन अथॉरिटी ऑफ इंडिया' ने कथित तौर पर एक आरटीआई के जवाब में दावा किया कि आधार कार्ड होल्डर्स का बायोमीट्रिक डाटा पूरी तरह सिक्योर है.

UIDAI वेबसाइट पर आधार यूजर्स को बायोमीट्रिक इन्फॉर्मेशन लॉक करने की सुविधा दी गई है, ताकि किसी भी तरह इसका गलत इस्तेमाल रोका जा सके. यहां हम आपको आधार का बायोमीट्रिक लॉक करने का प्रॉसेस बता रहे हैं.

Importance of Linking PAN Card with Aadhaar Card
Both the PAN card as well as the Aadhaar card are unique identification cards that serve as proof of identity that are necessary for registration and verification purposes.

The government has urged all entities to link their PAN cards with their Aadhaar cards. This is being done for the following purposes:

Prevent Tax Evasion:

By linking the Aadhaar and PAN cards, the government will be able to keep tabs on the taxable transactions of a particular individual or entity, whose identity and address will be verified by his Aadhaar card. This will effectively mean that every taxable transaction or activity will be recorded by the government.

As a result, the government will already have a detailed record of all the financial transactions that would attract tax for each entity, making tax evasion a thing of the past.

Multiple PAN Cards:

Another reason for linking PAN with Aadhaar is to reduce the occurrence of individuals or entities applying for multiple PAN cards in an effort to defraud the government and avoid paying taxes.

By applying for more than one PAN card, an entity can use one of the cards for a certain set of financial transactions and pay taxes applicable for those. Meanwhile, the other PAN card can be used for accounts or transactions that the entity wishes to conceal from the Income Tax department, thereby avoiding paying tax on them.

By linking the PAN and Aadhaar card, the government will be able to link the identity of an entity through his/her Aadhaar card, and subsequently have details of all financial transactions made through the linked PAN card. If there are multiple PAN cards registered under the same name, the government will be able to identify the same and take corrective action.

Ease in Filing of Income Tax Returns:

Entities who have linked their PAN and Aadhaar cards will be able to file their e-Returns, or their online Income Tax returns seamlessly and quickly. By linking the two, entities will no longer have to submit their Income Tax acknowledgement to the IT department, thus saving tax payers a lot of trouble.

Hi Friends i Think this is tha beast way linking the PAN and Aadhaar card If You Know Moor Added blow in comments

Yesterday, social media rumors began circulating that 50 crore or almost 50% of all mobile connections in India are at risk, due to Aadhaar KYC.

Several mainstream media shared this news, because it had a logic behind it – Supreme Court has ordered all telecom operators and private companies to delete Aadhaar data of users.

Now, once Aadhaar data is deleted, then the telcom operator won’t have any KYC of the user, and this means disconnection.
Govt. has assured no SIM will be disconnected due to Aadhaar
Govt. has assured no SIM will be disconnected due to Aadhaar
Panic began to set in, as mobile users all across the nation began to question the future.

After the outcry, both DoT and UIDAI had to come out, and issue clarifications.

Besides, leading telecom lobby COAI also stepped in, and said that due to the change in KYC model, services won’t be disruppted. However, for that, an alternative KYC needs to be shared.

Govt. of India: No Mobile Will Be Disconnected Due To KYC Issue

Crores of new mobile connections have been issued, solely based on Aadhaar KYC, and if the telecom companies are required to delete this Aadhaar data, then some inconvenience will happen.

However, Govt. of India has assured that no mobile connection will be disconnected.

A senior DoT official said, “We will ensure that customers services are not affected. Whatever arrangements are put in place it will facilitate a smooth transition from the current regime to the Supreme Court-compliant regime.”

At the same time, Govt. has admitted that 25-30 crore mobile users can face some inconvenience, as a new round of KYC will have to be done. This means submitting new documents as verification, other than Aadhaar.

Alternative KYC At The Time Of Issuing New SIM

On Wednesday and Thursday, representatives of the telecom industry, and the Department of Telecom held meetings to chalk out alternatives of Aadhaar-KYC while issuing new SIM cards.

A proposal has been mooted, wherein a new app will be created, for SIM sellers.

At the time of issuing new SIM, this app will embed the customer enrollment form, along with time-stamped, and a geo-tagged photograph of the customer, along with any identity proof such as PAN Card, Voter ID Card, Passport etc.

Although Aadhaar is a valid ID proof, the ise of Aadhaar as KYC will be avoided, as well as storage of Aadhaar data will be avoided, as per Supreme Court ruling.

More details are awaited on this regard.

COAI: Aadhaar Can Be Deleted With Alternative KYC

Meanwhile telecom players’ lobby COAI has assured that Aadhaar details linked with any user can be deleted, by providing an alternative KYC.

COAI Director General Rajan S Mathews said, “Telecom players had a meeting with the Department of Telecom and they have been clarified that customers willing to get their Aadhaar details deleted from telecom operator data base should be allowed to do so against valid identity and address proof,”

COAI has also assured that during the transition from Aadhaar to non-Aadhaar KYC, no mobile number will be disconnected, and services won’t be hampered.

Now, it would be interesting to observe how a smooth transition takes place, and how soon can it be done.

We will keep you updated, as more details come in.

Almost 50% of India’s current telecom users are staring at an impossible reality: Their SIM connections can be disconnected if they have obtained their connection via Aadhaar-KYC mode.

This sounds ridiculous, but this can become the reality.

Aadhaar-Only KYC Mode = Mobile Disconnection
Remember the days when telecom companies were luring, forcing, coercing you to link Aadhaar with your mobile, and get a new SIM by only using Aadhaar?

And you trusted them, and gave your Aadhaar number for getting a new SIM, and doing a new KYC for your existing mobile?

Well, it seems that it was a mistake.

Now, as per fresh reports coming in, all those SIMs which were activated with only Aadhaar as KYC can be disconnected.

The numbers can be as high as 50 crore mobile users, or almost 50% of current telecom users in India!
Aadhaar KYC SIMs can be disconnected
Aadhaar KYC SIMs can be disconnected

Why Aadhaar-KYC Mobiles Are At Risk?

There are two reasons.

First, the recent Supreme Court ruling, which ordered all private companies to destroy Aadhaar related data of customers. Now, UIDAI has asked to delink Aadhaar of users based on this ruling, and an ‘exit plan’ has been sought.

In case telecom firms do delink the Aadhaar, then there will be no KYC left.


And as per Telecom Ministry’s regulations, this means disconnection, unless other KYC is used.

And the second reason is that, in the month of March, telecom companies were ordered to destroy all pre-Aadhaar KYC documents, as they were undergoing digitalized, Aadhaar KYC.

Now, as those KYC documents are destroyed, and the current digitalized Aadhaar is delinked, there is no KYC left.

And this means disconnection.

What Is The Solution Here?

The only solution seems is a new KYC, which would be without Aadhaar.

And this massive exercise means more headache for the users, and telecom operators, as a new round of awareness, execution and follow-up is required.

This time without Aadhaar.

Telecom secretary Aruna Sundararajan has met representatives of various telecom operators, and have discussed this complex issue.

She assured that whatever happens, the subscribers won’t be hassled.

She said, “We want to ensure that it is a smooth transition with little problems for subscribers.”

Non-Aadhaar KYC can be: passport, driving licence, voter’s card, electricity bill, gas bill, PAN card.

May 03, 2018 ,
Telecom operators have said that Aadhaar number was never mandatory for new mobile connections but used only for the re-verification process of old subscribers, as per Department of Telecommunications norms, which still stand. Telcos added the recent reports quoting Telecom Secretary Aruna Sundararajan saying companies can also accept other modes of identification proofs besides Aadhaar for issuing new connections has led to more confusion for them. “We never told our new customers that Aadhaar was mandatory. So, now we do not know if the secretary means for verifying new customers or re-verifying old ones.
Aadhaar for New SIM Cards Was Never a Must Claim Telcos
This has definitely led to confusion…,” said an official at one of the operators told Economic Times. A DoT official also confirmed the same saying that Aadhaar was never mandatory but was one of the documents that consumers had to give for new connections. It was back in 2016 that telecom department told operators to accept Aadhaar as one of the documents to register new customers. The confusion arose after media reports that Sundararajan said companies had been directed to issue new SIM cards without Aadhaar on the basis of alternative identification such as election voter ID or driving license. “As per rule, fresh connections can be given using any authentic ID and address proof. There is no change in that rule.
Telecom operators cannot deny fresh SIM to people having valid ID and address proof document. For re-verification, we have to wait for Supreme Court order as the matter is sub-judice,” Sundararajan had said. Officials at the telcos asking not to be named say they have no new instructions from the government on the matter. They clarified Aadhaar was a preferred mode of verification for new users as it made the process easier and faster, but it wasn’t the only mode as other IDs including driving licenses and passports are also accepted.
However, an official told that SIM-Aadhaar linking policy still stands and those who have issued SIMs on the basis of other IDs than Aadhaar will be required to undergo re-verification through Aadhaar based e-KYC at later point. With the issue of Aadhaar being debated in the Supreme Court, there have been a lot of confusion, especially since Supreme Court clarified they had never passed any rule for making Aadhaar mandatory. Also, the DoT earlier extended the deadline for re-verification of mobile numbers through Aadhaar till the apex court decides of the constitutional validity of Aadhaar law.

OTP Based Aadhaar-Mobile Linking Process Will Go Live From 1st January
Since last weeks, Govt has been announcing new OTP based Aadhaar re-verification process for telecom users; but due to logistics and technical issues arising from the telecom operator’s end, the process couldn’t be started.
But now, the decks are cleared. All telecom operators have informed the Govt. that they are now ready with the infrastructure for linking mobile number of users with Aadhaar, and starting January 1st, any mobile user would be able to link their Aadhaar with their SIM, using a single OTP. Hence, no more mandatory visits to the retail outlets of telecom companies for performing this task, and no more hassles. However, considering that February 26th is the last date for this process, will Indian citizens have enough enough time to link their mobile with Aadhaar? And, why has this delay happened? We will soon find out..
OTP Based Aadhaar-Mobile Linking: How It Works? The process is very simple, and we must appreciate the telecom operators and UIDAI for making this process really easy. This is how it will work:
-Step 1: Telecom users will be required to call a number, which will be heavily advertized by all telecom operators, all across the India. It seems that different telecom operators will have different toll-free numbers where their users can call and start the process of Aadhaar re-verification. But earlier, UIDAI had informed that there will be a single number for the process. We will update this section when we get more clarity.
-Step 2: The toll-free number shall be an Interactive Voice Response System (IVRS), where the user will be informed about the process in English, Hindi and other major regional languages.
-Step 3: The IVRS will ask for a consent from the user, and when YES would be pressed, the user will receive an OTP. -
Step 4:
As soon as the OTP is confirmed, the mobile number shall be linked with Aadhaar, and the re-verification process would be successfully completed.

But.. Why This Delay? This easy, smooth OTP based Aadhaar re-verification was announced by Govt. in the month of October, when it was said that starting November 15th, users would be able to use this. However, later it was postponed to December 1st, and now, January 1st is the final roll-out date. This unnecessary delay of 1.5 months is something which is really interesting, considering that both telecom operators and Govt. were on the same page on this issue. And, the blame game has already started. COAI, which is an influential lobby of telecom operators have blamed UIDAI for the delay, but UIDAI has refused to accept the blame. It seems there was some confusion regarding the Customer Acquisition Form (CAF), which was earlier supposed to be filled by the user before OTP based re-verification process started. But now, there is no mention of this step.
COAI in a statement said, “This (announcement of November 15th launch) was done even though the telecom department, UIDAI and the (telecom) industry were still under discussions on the OTP-based process… the telecom companies have in the past represented to UIDAI that in order to implement the OTP-based process, the present Customer Acquisition Form (CAF) would be required to be modified.” One of the UIDAI official has claimed that “it was rather the mobile companies that had been dilly-dallying”. Now, the question is, whether 1 month and 25 days are enough for almost 30 crore users who have still not linked their Aadhaar with mobile number? We will soon find out!
Before We End, A Word Of Caution OTP based scams are happening a lot these days, as the scamster leaves no stone unturned to confuse and cajole the end-user to share their OTP. Hence, for OTP based Aadhaar re-verification, only rely on the official number shared by your telecom operator, and NEVER, under any circumstances, reveal your OTP to any person. This OTP based process is fully automatic, and there shall be living person involved.

Final Deadline! Every Mobile No. Should Be Linked With Aadhaar By 26 Feb 2018!
The decks are cleared, and the path is determined. Govt. is refusing to retreat on their firm resolve to make Aadhaar the de-facto identity of every Indian.

In a latest affidavit filed by the Centre, it has been said that every mobile needs to be linked with Aadhaar by February 26th, and every bank with Aadhaar by March 31st.

And, when it comes to hacking of Aadhaar data, then Govt. has plainly stated that no such incident has ever happened.

So, the Aadhaar push is real, and mandatory. There is no way out now.

Mobile No.-Aadhaar Linkage By February 26th: Govt.
In the ongoing case in Supreme Court regarding Aadhaar and its mandatory linkage with services, Govt. of India has filed an affidavit, which states that they cannot go back now.

February 26th is the deadline for every mobile phone user to link their Aadhaar.

The 113- page affidavit was filed by advocate Zoheb Hossain, on behalf of Govt. of India.

On October 31st, in the same case, Supreme Court had questioned Centre’s relentless push towards Aadhaar linkage, and had asked them why it was needed in the first place.

In an indirect reference to this question, Govt. has informed Supreme Court that they are acting on the instruction of the Apex Court itself, and going back on this may not be possible now. Centre is referring to the Lokniti Foundation case, during which arguments were put forth regarding illegal usage of mobile phones, and how Aadhaar can check these activities.

The hearing took place in February this year, and Centre has sought 1-year deadline for implementing the mandatory Aadhaar-Mobile linking, which Supreme Court had approved.

Hence, as per the Centre, going back on this action would be going against the Supreme Court itself.

Bank-Aadhaar Linkage By March 31
Meanwhile, in the affidavit, Govt. has informed Supreme Court that the deadline for linking bank accounts with Aadhaar has been extended till March 31st. Earlier, the deadline was December 31st.

Centre said,
“Until March 31, existing bank accounts will not be made non-operational for not linking with Aadhaar. But as far as opening new bank accounts are concerned, Aadhaar or enrolment ID must be given as proof of identity. For existing account holders, the deadline for Aadhaar based verification is being extended to March 31 and no coercive action will be taken till then.”
Reacting to reports that some Indian citizens have died of starvation, as they didn’t get the approved ration in the absence of Aadhaar, Govt. said no starvation death has been reported as of now.

Besides, Govt. has also denied any incident of Aadhaar data breach or compromising security of the UIDAI server, ever.

Govt. said,
“There has not been a single instance of hacking or data breach in or from UIDAI or any of its servers.”
Besides, the affidavit says that hacking incidents do happen, with or without Aadhaar.

We have already reported that 75% of active SIM cards in India can be deactivated, if Aadhaar is not linked.

Every telco in India is right now ‘ordering’ and ‘requesting’ their users to connect their Aadhaar with their mobile, as soon as possible.

आधार से बैंक अकाउंट लिंक करने के RBI के आदेश के खिलाफ SC में याचिका दायर supreme court challenging rbi order to link bank account with aadhaar
आधार को बैंक खातों से लिंक करने की अनिवार्यता पर रोक लगाने का रिजर्व बैंक ऑफ इंडिया (आरबीआई) के शनिवार को आए फैसले के बाद इस पर रोक लगाने की मांग तेज हो गई है। आरबीआई के इस आदेश की संवैधानिक वैधता को लेकर सुप्रीम कोर्ट में एक नई याचिका दायर की गई है। याचिका में आधार को बैंक खातों से जोड़ने के आदेश को निजता के अधिकार का उल्लंघन बताया गया है। 

गौरतलब है कि शनिवार को रिजर्व बैंक ने स्पष्ट किया था कि बैंक खाते को बायोमीट्रिक पहचान संख्या आधार से जोड़ना अनिवार्य है। देश के केंद्रीय बैंक को यह स्पष्टीकरण इसलिए जारी करना पड़ा क्योंकि मीडिया में यह खबर चल रही थी कि सूचना के अधिकार के तहत मांगी गई जानकारी के जवाब में बैंक ने कहा है कि बैंक खाते को आधार से जोड़ने को लेकर उसने कोई आदेश जारी नहीं किया है। 

टाइम्स ऑफ इंडिया की रिपोर्ट के मुताबिक कल्याणी मेनन सेन ने याचिका दायर की है। कल्याणी पिछले 25 सालों से महिलाओं के अधिकार की लड़ाई लड़ रही हैं। उन्होंने मोबाइल नंबर को आधार से लिंक करने के आदेश के खिलाफ भी याचिका दायर कर रखी है। दोनों ही मामलों में यचिकाकर्ता का कहना है कि ये निजता के अधिकार का उल्लंधन का मामला है। 

रिजव बैंक ने कहा है कि 1 जून, 2017 को सरकारी गजट में प्रकाशित प्रिवेंशन ऑफ मनी लांड्रिंग रूल्स, 2017 के अनुसार बैंक खाते को आधार से साथ जोड़ना जरूरी है।
ये नियम वैधानिक हैं, इसलिए बैंकों को उन्हें लागू करने से पहले किसी तरह के निर्देश की जरूरत नहीं है।

मालूम हो कि सरकार ने इस साल जून में बैंक खाता खोलने के लिए और 50 हजार रुपये से ज्यादा के लेन-देन के लिए आधार को अनिवार्य कर दिया है। मौजूदा खाताधारकों को इसके लिए 31 दिसंबर, 2017 तक का समय दिया गया है। इसके बाद जो खाते आधार से लिंक नहीं होंगे, उन्हें बंद कर दिया जाएगा।

RBI Clarifies: Linking Bank Accounts With Aadhaar NOT Mandatory As Of Now!
The doubts have been finally cleared. Reserve Bank of India, India’s central banking institution, has made it absolutely clear that linking bank accounts with Aadhaar is not mandatory as of now.
This clarification by RBI has cleared so many doubts, especially at a time when banks are using every force available with them to ‘force’ and ‘coerce’ their customers to link Aadhaar with their bank accounts.
In a related news, Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), the central authority to monitor and regulate Aadhaar cards have explicitly said that no Indian can be denied welfare schemes, in the absence of Aadhaar card.

This comes after a 11-year old kid in Jharkhand died because she was not able to receive ration due to non-availability of Aadhaar.

RBI: Linking Of Bank Accounts With Aadhaar Not Mandatory
Moneylife, a news portal, had filed an RTI with RBI, seeking clarification on the linking with bank accounts.

In their reply, RBI has stated that it “has not issued any instruction so far regarding mandatory linking of Aadhaar number with bank accounts.”

Clearing all doubts related with ‘mandatory’ rule, RBI has said,
“The Government has issued a Gazette Notification GSR 538(E) dated 1 June 2017 regarding Prevention of Money laundering (Maintenance of Records) Second Amendment Rules, 2017, inter-alia, making furnishing of Aadhaar (for those individuals who are eligible to be enrolled for Aadhaar) and permanent number (PAN) mandatory for opening a bank account. It may be noted that Reserve Bank has not yet issued an instruction in this regard”.
This means that Govt. is forcing all banks to ask their customers for linking their bank accounts, in their own capacity. RBI as such hasn’t issued any notification regarding the same.

In the RTI, it was also asked whether RBI has taken permission to force mandatory linking with bank accounts, which, RBI has denied, as they have said they have issued no such notification in their official capacity.

In May this year, we had reported how a journalist figured out that Aadhaar linking of bank accounts is not mandatory, as unnamed bank managers informed her this fact.

However, in June, under Prevention of Money Laundering Rule, Govt. has made it mandatory for all bank accounts to be linked with Aadhaar by December 2017, or else their accounts would be blocked.

Confusion persists, but one thing is clear: If you are linking your bank account with Aadhaar, then do please do it only at the bank, not via phone. If you are doing it via phone, responding to a fraudster, your money can be robbed.

UIDAI: No Indian Can Be Denied Welfare In Absence of Aadhaar
A huge uproar ensued in India, when a 11-year old girl from Jharkhand’s one of the poorest district died when she was not given ration as her Aadhaar was not linked.

Although clarifications were issued later, that she died because of malaria, and not Aadhaar issue, the anger was clearly there.

UIDAI had to come out, and issue a statement, saying that no Indian can be denied welfare in the absence of Aadhaar.

UIDAI CEO Ajay Bhushan Pandey has said, “Section 7 specifies that till Aadhaar number is prescribed, the benefits should be given through alternate means of identification,”

Pandey also stated that the girl had Aadhaar card, and the reason for her death is indeed unfortunate. A proper enquiry would be done to find out the truth.

He said, “The Jharkhand government has ordered a probe in the matter to find out the facts behind the unfortunate incident. I expect that person responsible for denial of benefits – inspite of Aadhaar card – will be held accountable and necessary action will be taken against such people by the state, so that it acts as a deterrent for future.”

Even as the issue of privacy of citizens is being debated in the Supreme Court right now, Govt. of India is continuing with their effort to expand the usage and relevance of Aadhaar in more sectors.


Two major developments have evolved in this regard: Aadhaar number would be mandatory for registration of any property which is being sold in India; and Aadhaar would be mandatorily required for issuing driving license.

Aadhaar Must For Property Deals – Benami No More?
When it comes to real estate, then black money is a major issue. Property prices gets elevated, simply on the basis of rumors, and most of the transactions happen via cash.
In order to put a check on such benami deals, Govt. has now made it mandatory to include Aadhaar during the registration of the documents, related to the property deal.
Hence, for critical documents such as agreement for sale, power of attorney, will and more, participating parties will be required to product and mention their Aadhaar number by law.

In fact, Govt. will soon amend Sections 32 and 32A of the Registration Act, 1908, so that there are no legal loopholes.

An unnamed source who is close to the development said, “Every person presenting a document at the property registration office for registration, shall, whether executing or claiming under the same, undergo Aadhaar authentication..”
Right now, till the it becomes a law, Department of Land Resources, which falls under under the Ministry of Rural Development, has already written to all State Governments and UTs to mandate ‘consent based Aadhaar authentication’ for all property deals.
Once every PAN Card is linked with Aadhaar, then such moves will deter black money hoarders from skipping tax, and real estate market can become more transparent, and honest.

Aadhaar Must For Driving License As Well
In a related news, Government is now about to create a central database of all vehicles and their owners, using Aadhaar as the binding factor.

As per Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari, this move will help to stop all ‘bogus licences’, which are issued.

He said, “It will bring transparency and will save people from having licences in different states..”

Earlier this week, Union Minister for Information & Technology, Ravi Shankar Prasad had also hinted that every driving license will be now required to be linked with Aadhaar database.

We will keep you updated as we receive more updates regarding this news.

Your PAN Card Can Be Blocked If Not Linked With AadhaarAs the last date for filing Income Tax returns have been extended to August 5th, several interesting data, revelations and warnings have come out from the Govt., related to Aadhaar card linking with PAN Card.

But first, let us start with the facts.

1.2 Million PAN Cards Deactivated Due To Duplication
In a written reply to a question in Lok Sabha, Minister of State for Finance Santosh Kumar Gangwar informed that due to duplication issues, 11.44 lakh PAN Cards have been deactivated.
He explicitly stated that every Indian citizen is entitled to have only one PAN Card. Around 1500+ cases of fake PAN Cards were also unearthed, which were issued to non-existing citizens.
He said, “One PAN for one person is the guiding principle for allotment of PAN..”

PAN Card May Be Blocked After August 31st If Not Linked With Aadhaar
When Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) issued a statement regarding extension of the last date of filing IT returns to August 31st, they said that PAN Cards which are not linked with Aadhaar before August 31st can be blocked.

While the last date for filing ITR has been extended till August 5th from August 1st; the last date for linking PAN Card with Aadhaar has been declared as August 31st.

The statement said that if Aadhaar card is not received, then mentioning acknowledgement number is enough.

The statement said, “For the purpose of e—filing return, it would be sufficient as of now to quote Aadhaar or acknowledgement number for having applied for Aadhaar in the e-filing website.”, adding, “The actual linking of PAN with Aadhaar can be done subsequently, but any time before August 31, 2017,”

The date for ITR filing has been extended due to issues related with website access.
The statement said, “While technical snags have been removed already, the main reason for failure of people to log in (the e-filing portal) is because of last minute rush and panic in which those who have already logged in want to continue for the entire period for fear of losing it.”
Thus, this is clear that even if you are not filing ITR, linking your PAN Card with Aadhaar is a necessity now.

Some earlier reports state that PAN Cards can be linked with Aadhaar till December 31st, after which they would be blocked.

Govt. of India: Aadhaar Cannot Be Used To Track Anyone
Meanwhile, in the ongoing case related to protection of privacy and Aadhaar execution, Govt. informed the Supreme Court that Aadhaar cannot be used to track any person.

Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Tushar Mehta, who was representing Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) said that such are the inbuilt privacy protection features within Aadhaar system, that even UIDAI ‘wouldn’t know where the Aadhaar is being used.’

The case is sub-judice, and is being currently debated and heard by a nine-judge constitutional bench led by the Chief Justice of India JS Khehar.
