Linking Aadhaar with Bank Account through the ATM
As of now the account holders do not have the facility to link their Aadhaar with bank account through ATMs. However, the bank is in process to provide users this facility as well in the near future.
Linking Aadhaar with Bank Account through SMS/Mobile
Even though most banks provide the facility to link Aadhaar with bank accounts using SMS or via mobile app, but Allahabad Bank does not provide such feature currently.
