How to check Mutual Funds – Aadhaar Linking Status online?

e_Sahyog _ New Online Facility to resolve Income Tax Returns mismatch issues

As per the recent amendments to Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) Rules, 2017, Financial Institutions like Mutual Funds are mandated to obtain Aadhaar Number from their customers and link the same to the respective accounts / Folios.

The last date to link Aadhaar to Mutual funds is 31-March-2018 (as of now).

I am sure most of the mutual fund investors might have already submitted/provided their Aadhaar numbers to RTAs (like CAMS/Karvy/Franklin) (or) to the respective Fund houses.

I have also linked my Aadhaar to Mutual fund folios that I have invested in and have received the below confirmation email about the ‘Mutual Fund – Aadhaar Linking Status’ from one the RTAs i.e., CAMS.

I am sure, you might have also received such ’email authentication’ from your RTAs. However, even after linking Aadhaar to Mutual Fund folios, you may keep getting e-mail or SMS requests from the respective AMCs (Fund houses) or RTAs about Aadhaar linking, irrespective of whether you have linked Mutual funds with Aadhaar or not.

This can be quite confusing and you may be wondering whether your mutual fund folios have been successfully linked to Aadhaar or not. Is there any way to know your Mutual Funds – Aadhaar linking status online? Do you need to call each and every AMC to know the linking status, or is there any other simple way to know Aadhaar linking status?

Yes, you may call the AMCs to know the linking status, but this can be a time-consuming option. However, the RTAs like CAMS and Karvy have now come up with online provisions to know Aadhaar number – Mutual Fund folios linking status online.

    Dear Srikanth,Recently we are listening in media a lot of frauds in Banks in India.Even your money is not safe in your savings account in the bank.A hacker can withdraw all your life savings in one go or a thief can withdraw your money from your account with help of a corrupt bank man.It was a news recently in a news paper.Another side.Peoples are investing in mutual funds in billions every year.If we forget negative returns,how safe is your money in debt funds or equity funds.Can a fraudulent person withdraw your money from your mutual fund.I hope you understand my question.I will like you to write a an article comparing both methods of saving money with stress on safety.I think you are the most appropriate person to analyse.

    • Dear Dr Jawahar ji,
      A fraudulent person can play with technology and can withdraw funds from any type of investment product or service. That’s the pros & cons of Technology…

      However, a fraudster may find it easier to withdraw funds from a bank than to redeem mutual fund units of an investor and then get those funds transferred to his account (which is a very difficult task).

    • Dear Durga,
      If you are investing in your minor kid’s name, then your Aadhaar should be linked to the respective MF folio.
      Aadhaar information of the major need to be furnished when Minor attains Majority status for effecting suitable changes..
