How do we ensure that the seeding of Aadhar number with savings bank account is completed and that account is ready to receive subsidy under Direct Benefit Transfer?
Bank passbook does not have any indicator saying “Aadhar enabled” or “Aadhar seeded”
Nor does UIDAI sent any email or SMS saying “Thank you for linking your account ending XXXX with Aadhar. You can now receive subsidy in the account under Direct Benefits Transfer scheme”
In my case, the bank has refused to confirm whether the seeding of Aadhar is complete and the account is ready to receive subsidy. UIDAI lowest level to highest level have refused to read or reply to the emails sent. They cannot even confirm whether my Aadhar number has started showing any linkages with any bank account. So is their job only to issue me a number and not do anything with that number later on?
If I have more than one account seeded with my Aadhar number, which account will the subsidy get credited is not known to me nor does UIDAI tell me. In such cases, the customer should be allowed to choose or check “primary account” and that account should receive subsidy. It seems such a feature is a bouncer for UIDAI if they understand correctly.
Has India rushed too much with respect to Aadhar and UID without homework? Laminated Aadhar letters have not reached even in 6 or 8 months, banks refuse to accept eAadhar printout as proof of Aadhar and UIDAI says that eAadhar is valid proof. Almost 37 crore Aadhar letters do not display entire Date of Birth but only Year of Birth.
