People having their bank account in Corporation Bank have to link their Aadhaar with bank accounts to prevent deactivation. All government subsidies are also disbursed only in Aadhaar-linked bank accounts. Thus, it is of prime importance to link your Corporation Bank account with Aadhaar if you have not done so already. When you link your bank account with Aadhaar, the bank considers it as genuine.
