"The effective date for mandatory submission of PAN and Aadhaar number with requisite documents at the time of opening new folio or account, will now be April 1, 2018 instead of February 15, 2018."

"Accordingly, no new folio account will be opened without the said documents effective April 1, 2018," BSE said in a statement.
