Hello,
All of us are aware that very recently, the honourable Supreme Court held that 'Privacy is a fundamental right'. But the banks in which I hold accounts are sending me SMSs almost everyday to furnish my Aadahar Card information to them. Should I refuse to submit submit it ? OR whether the banks have right to ask me to furnish this info? Please Advice. Thanks in advance.

Right to privacy id fundamental right of Indian citizen as per the Constitution of India. But Linking Adhar card with your bank account does not fall within the purview of the same. As per the guideline issued by the Reserve Bank of India providing information of the Adhar card is mandatory for the account holders.
