Aadhaar with UAN deadline extended till November 31, 2021
The Delhi High Court has extended the deadline to seed Aadhaar with UAN till November 31. The government had earlier said that the deadline for linking Aadhaar with UAN & PAN and bank account will be March 31, 2021.
The extension of date is applicable only to provident fund holders whose pension benefits are routed through their UAN. It is not clear if this extension applies to EPF or other retirement funds which are routed through banks.
Some experts have suggested that this might also apply to employees who want voluntary retirement from service but have no time limit for it as they reach superannuation age. They can now link Aadhaar before they retire so that their payment does not get delayed after retiring from service because of lack of KYC details in their employer’s records.
How to complete the process?
The court’s decision came after it was informed that the government had not given any specific guidelines on how to complete this process. Seed Aadhaar with your UAN now and avoid disconnection of services. You can find out more about UID seeding here – https://www.uidai.gov.in/web/guest/aadhaar-seeding-to-universal-accounts-number
