State Bank of India (SBI) has decided to use the Aadhar Number to verify the identity of candidates in the recruitment process. Ascertaining the identities of candidates is critical for fair conduct of the recruitment process and prevention of impersonation.  SBI proposes to verify the identity of the candidates through Aadhaar number in all its recruitment processes w.e.f. 1st July 2017.

Accordingly, while applying for an appointment in SBI it will be mandatory to furnish the 12 digits Aadhaar No. (or 28 digits Aadhaar enrollment ID in case the Aadhaar has been applied for, but not received). The Aadhaar number will be used at the discretion of SBI to match the biometric information taken through the 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.

Jurisdiction of the Decision 

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 recruitment in SBI.


In recent time, the Government of India is trying to use Aadhar for verification of the right candidates in its various schemes and plannings. The use of Aadhar in SBI will correctly verify the candidates and the job seekers will be spared from providing so many papers. Earlier Railway also made Aadhar mandatory in all railway recruitment.
