The Indian government has made an amendment to the PMLA (Prevention of Money Laundering Act) which has required all insurance policy holders to link insurance policies with Aadhar card. The deadline for this activity is set as December 31, 2017. If one does not link their insurance policy with their Aadhar card before the deadline, their insurance policy might be frozen until the linking.
