Old aged, ill, & injured can use ID proofs other than Aadhaar for bank a/c: Govt
New Delhi: The government on Wednesday allowed injured, ill and infirm old aged persons to use alternative means of authentication in place of national biometric ID Aadhaar to confirm their identity for bank accounts.
In a gazette notification, the government said Prevention of Money-laundering rules have been amended to provide for alternative means of identification, for such select category of people who face difficulties in their biometric authentication.
The amendment provides for "appropriate exemptions, limitations and conditions and alternative and viable means of identification, to provide account-based services to clients who are unable to undergo biometric authentication owing to injury, illness or infirmity on account of old age or otherwise, and such like causes."
