The Government has announced several deadline dates for the Aadhaar submission and rescheduled several times. As per the revised guidelines, the last date has been postponed to March 31, 2018. You can link Aadhaar number at the time of opening a new bank account or anytime by submitting the required KYC form provided by the bank.

To check whether the relevant bank account has been linked with Aadhaar, you need to navigate to uidai.gov.in and selecting the option captioned “Check Aadhaar & Bank Account Linking Status”.
