The Government of India has made it compulsory to link their PAN number with Aadhaar Card. This step is important as it helps in filing your annual tax returns. It is a way to detect tax evasion and tax frauds and ensure a greater compliance.
If you are amongst these taxpayers, all you have to do is perform a simple two-step process and get your Aadhaar linked to your PAN number. You don’t even need to register or login at the e-filing site, as the facility is available for one and all.
Follow the 2-step procedure
If you want to execute and perform the process smoothly, it will be imperative to follow the 2-step procedure. These steps will lead you to successful linking of PAN number with Aadhaar Card. Here are the important steps:
Visit the official Income Tax e-filing site and click on the link present in the left pane. Once you do that, you can link your Aadhaar Card immediately.
Enter your PAN and Aadhaar number along with your name. Make sure you write your name with the correct spelling as present in your Aadhaar Card. If you are sure about the details entered by you, submit the application. The UIDAI will verify the information, and if the results are positive, your links will get confirmed.
If the UIDAI comes across any minor mismatch in the Aadhaar name, you will have to enter the Aadhaar OTP provided by the site. Check and make sure that the D.O.B and gender in your PAN card is the same as the Aadhaar. In case of correction of name or DOB in PAN card, then this link will prove to be helpful.
In the rarest of cases, the Aadhaar and PAN information will fail to match. During such occasions, your links will fail and the entire procedure will get cancelled. You can resume only after changing the information in either of the two databases. It is very important to keep these steps and processes in mind while linking Aadhaar with your PAN Card.
