How to link Aadhar Card with SBI bank account? That's what this post is going to be about. By the end of this article you'll have a clear idea about how to Link your Aadhar Card with your SBI bank account.
The Aadhar Card is one of the most important documents for Indian citizens at the moment, isn't it? I've already explained a dozen times why you need an Aadhar Card.The Aadhaar Card right now helps you get a subsidy, helps you get a LPG connection, and even lets you open a bank account! If that wasn't enough, you can even get your siblings admitted into schools with Aadhar Cards in some cases.
But as always, let's start from the Basics...
What Are the Benefits of knowing How to Link Aadhar Card to SBI account:-
Well, for starters, you'll now know how to link Aadhar Card to SBI account, even if not for yourselves, but you can do it for your relatives and friends, and trust me in that circle, these small "geniuses" matter.
Apart from that, the primary reason why anyone would want to know how to link Aadhar Card to SBI bank accounts is that the Indian Govt. has recently started the LPG subsidy, right?

Meaning you get a major cashback of whatever you've paid for your LPG gas, to your SBI accounts! That way you can have around 60% of discount on LPG cylinders (
So linking your Aadhar Card to SBI account would help you avail that subsidy.
Well, there are hundreds of bank accounts in India, but the SBI is the most popular one. The reason being, other banks like HDFC need a minimum deposit of INR 5000 for the account to be opened.
Now, the LPG subsidy is for the financially weak section of the society, isn't it? How would a "financially weak" person hold an account in such high-end banks?
That's the reason they go and open up their accounts in the SBI, because there either is no minimum deposit required, or a deposit of around 1000INR works mostly.This is the reason why SBI is the most popular bank in India and why you should link your aadhar card to your SBI account.
