After the government made it mandatory for people to link Aadhaar with various schemes and financial instruments, IRDAI issued a notification suggesting policyholders to link insurance policies with Aadhar. Policyholders also have to link PAN with their insurance policy. Policies not linked with PAN and Aadhaar will be deactivated after the end of the deadline and will be reactivated only when the policyholder links the policy with aforementioned documents.
