The digital world has undoubtedly made life easier for people, but it has also brought new challenges. One such challenge is the spread of misinformation on social media platforms. Recently, a message has gone viral on social media claiming that the government has introduced a new rule regarding Aadhaar-based banking transactions. According to this message, if a person does not transact using Aadhaar in his bank account at least once a month, his Aadhaar-based banking services will be blocked. Let's dig deeper and find out the truth behind these claims.

What is the matter?

A post is going viral on social media claiming that RBI has introduced a new update for Aadhaar-based banking. According to this viral post, it is now mandatory to conduct at least one transaction using Aadhaar every month, failing which the Aadhaar-based banking service will be locked. Due to this misinformation, some people have also started withdrawing money from their Aadhaar-linked bank accounts. But is there any truth in this claim? Has RBI issued any such update? Let's see what PIB's fact-check reveals.
