    I do not see it to be mandatory. The focus is on government scheme beneficiaries.

    IIRC , only few months back many banks opposed such move. I am not sure if ICICI was part of it.

    It is not compulsory... They are legally required to provide this option to their customers... Weather u attach it or not is totally up to u...

    Govt wants aadhar cards linked with bank accounts, so it gets easier for them to provide various subsidies to the masses. Personally, as a banker, I don't want aadhar cards to be treated as KYC documents as of yet. Too many inconsistancies.

    Can we link Aadhar number to all Bank accounts we have? I have account in 3 banks, but I think linking Aadhar number with 1 number would be sufficient?

    I am pretty sure u can link aadhar to only one acct... If the acct gets closed or whatever I am sure there will be a way to change it to another acct... But linking it to multiple accts does not seem possible yet... On the other hand I would think that the ultimate goal of aadhar would be to be a kind of all in one information data bank a bit like social security number in the US or SIN number in canada... I would think in the long term all ur accts would be automatically to ur aadhar card along with other things like pan card...
