State Bank of India (SBI) propose to introduce the scheme of verifying the

various dates as published in the Official Gazette. Pursuant to Section 57 of the
Aadhaar Act 2016, SBI proposes to verify the identity of the candidates through

while applying for appointment in SBI it will be mandatory to furnish the 12 digit
Aadhaar No. (or 28 digit Aadhaar enrolment ID in case the Aadhaar has been
applied for, but not received). The Aadhaar number will be used at discretion of SBI
to match the biometric information taken through biometric attendance system at the
time of the examination/ interview/ medical fitness test/ reporting for joining with that
stored on the Aadhaar server to establish the identity of the candidate.

The above provision is applicable in all States and Union Territories of India except
the States of Jammu & Kashmir, Meghalaya and Assam
. Applicants from these
States may use voter ID, passport, driving license or any other valid document, as
may be specified by SBI in the relevant recruitment notice, as proof of identity for
future recruitments in SBI.
