80% Bank Accounts Linked to Aadhar


With less than a month left for the deadline to link your bank account to Aadhar, UIDAI reports that around 80% of the bank accounts and 60% of mobile connections have been linked.

The government made it mandatory to link bank accounts and PAN to Aadhar to keep track of unaccounted wealth movement in the country.
