If you have investments in schemes like Public Provident Fund (PPF), National Savings Certificate (NSC), Senior Citizens Savings Scheme (SCSS), or any other post office scheme, it is important to ensure that your Aadhaar number has been submitted to the post office or bank branch by September 30, 2023.
Failure to do so will result in the freezing of your small savings investments until the Aadhaar number is provided.
This is because the Ministry of Finance has made it mandatory to link Aadhaar with small savings schemes.
According to a notification dated March 31, 2023, individuals who have not submitted their Aadhaar number to the Accounts Office within six months of the notification, i.e., by September 30, 2023, will face consequences such as no interest being credited to their bank account, inability to deposit money into their PPF or Sukanya Samriddhi Accounts, and not receiving the maturity amount in their bank account.
