    Latest is that we don’t need to link Aadhaar unless you have SB account with PO. If you only have KVP, NSC, linking is not required. Confirmed from post office

    I have multiple NSC’s from different post offices with me.
    I also do not have any post office savings account.
    Could you please let me know if approach 1 mentioned by you would still be the case?
    I had recently visited a post office and they collected my NSC details.No aadhar lining form was used.
    I still haven not received any notification SMS as well about 4 working days.

      Hi Suraj,

      I am looking for some information on how to update Aadhaar number for NSC certificates. Did the post office updated Aadhaar number for your NSCs? Currently I am not staying in India and I have couple of NSC certificates which were matured last year. Recently, when my Dad visited the post office, they said that they are not collecting Aadhaar for NSCs. So, can you please confirm if they updated Aadhaar number for your NSCs? If yes, please let me know the procedure. Thanks !!
