Now, the Government is using the Aadhaar as a weapon against black money. An amendment has been made in the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) Rules, 2017.
It is now compulsory for Mutual Fund houses to get your (customer's) Aadhaar number and link it to your Mutual Fund folio. Do pay heed to this deadline. A deadline of December 31st has been set for mutual funds to link yours and all other customer's Aadhaar to respective accounts.
CAMS (Computer Age Management Services), a Registrar and transfer agent, has launched an online facility, so that you can link your mutual fund investments to Aadhaar.
