The earlier deadline was 31 March.

The decision came a day after the government also extended the deadline for linking Aadhaar with PAN for the fourth time till 30 June.

Last week, the government had also extended the last date for re-verification of mobile connections through Aadhaar based E-KYC process till the Supreme Court's verdict on the matter.

The Supreme Court had earlier this month extended the deadline for linking of various services with Aadhaar till it delivers its judgment on a batch of petitions challenging the constitutional validity of the biometrical identification scheme.
