NRIs Not Required Linking Aadhaar Card: According to UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India), Non Resident Indians(NRIs) and Overseas Citizens of India (OCIs) are not required to link their Aadhaar Card with their Bank Account and Mobile number. The UIDAI or Unique Identification Authority of India, the issuer of the biometrics-based Aadhaar card and UID, has clarified on this.
“NRI/OCI (Overseas Citizen of India) are not eligible to obtain Aadhaar as per the Aadhaar Act and hence are fully exempted to produce Aadhaar for any verification… NRI/OCI need not verify their bank account or SIM or PAN with Aadhaar. If required, they may inform the service provider(s) that they being NRI/OCI are exempted from Aadhaar verification,” the UIDAI said on microblogging site Twitter.

Is it Necessary to Link Aadhaar Card with Bank Account ?
“Yes, as per the amended PML rules, it is mandatory to verify all bank account with Aadhaar by December 31, 2017. To do so, you may please visit your bank’s home branch at the earliest. Please do not give your Aadhaar details on phone to any unauthorised person/agency,” the UIDAI added.
Why do we Need to Verify Bank Account with Aadhaar Card ?
“By verifying your bank account with Aadhaar, you are adding an additional layer of security. Your bank account information is never transferred to Aadhaar/UIDAI by your bank,” the UIDAI said.
