Deadline for linking Aadhaar with welfare schemes extended till June 30

New Delhi: The government on Wednesday extended the deadline for linking Aadhaar with the disbursal of benefits including subsidies under the social welfare schemes by three more months, till June 30.

The earlier deadline was March 31.

The decision came a day after the government also extended the deadline for linking Aadhaar with PAN for the fourth time till June 30.

Last week, the government had also extended the last date for re-verification of mobile connections through Aadhaar based E-KYC process till the Supreme Court’s verdict on the matter.

The Supreme Court had earlier this month extended the deadline for linking of various services with Aadhaar till it delivers its judgment on a batch of petitions challenging the constitutional validity of the biometrical identification scheme.
