b.      In case of single account holders there is no issue, however for joint accounts the Post office should take care of:
  i.      The Aadhaar number should be mapped to a specific account holder. If the account holder get removed/deactivated Aadhaar number should automatically deactivated.
   ii.      If the POs is using the customer ID to map the Aadhaar number, then the system should be built in such a way that the primary account to which Aadhaar is mapped should be picked up automatically at the time of crediting the transactions.
