As per latest amendments to Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) Rules, 2017, financial institutions like mutual funds are mandated to obtain Aadhaar number from their customers and link the same to the respective mutual funds accounts/folios. The deadline to link your Aadhaar to your Mutual funds is March 31, 2018. However, if you haven’t linked your Aadhaar to your mutual funds folios till now, you can read the below posts and link your Aadhaar to your mutual funds folios.

Here problem is that even after linking Aadhaar to Mutual Fund folios, you keep getting email or SMS requests from your mutual funds AMCs about Aadhaar linking. This is quite confusing and you are not sure if your Aadhaar linking has happened or not. To be sure whether your Aadhaar linking has happened or not, you can call all your mutual fund AMCs. Alternatively, you can check your Aadhaar linking status online on CAMS and Karvy websites.
