    I am having a personal account with State Bank of India Broadway Branch Chennai. I tried the online method you mentioned to connect my Aadhaar ID with account but it shows error. Any solution ?

    I submitted my AADHAAR details on my branch. It is weeks now. No confirmation. Please Help

  3. Aakash,

    It is normal as State Bank officials will take a few weeks to verify your Aadhaar Card details before complete the AADHAAR card seeding.

  4. @ Balaji

    I understand that you are getting error while seeding your Aadhaar Number with SBI account while trying online method. I suggest you to try the SMS method.

    @ Aakash Patel

    I suggest you to wait one more week. This process may take up to one month.

  5. While trying to link aadhar to my sbi account, i faced an error saying that the details of my bank account isnt matching with aadhar. kindly suggest me the remedy asap

  6. @Naby Bharath,

    Easiest remedy is to visit your SBI branch and change the details which are not matching with Aadhaar. Another way is to change the details in Aadhaar database but I think it is easier to change bank account details.

    PS: Some times, your bank account details shows name with initials but only the expansions of initials are displayed in Aadhaar. This is one of the major reasons to get "not matching" error while linking Aadhaar with bank account.
