How to Link Pan Number with Aadhar Card

 

Both the PAN card as well as the Aadhar card are unique identification cards that serve as proof of identity that are necessary for registration and verification purposes. The Process to link your Aadhar number with PAN numner or Income Tax Return has been announced by Income Tax Department on July 13, 2015.

 

Income Tax Department(ITR) has given the facility to link Permanent Account Number (PAN) with the unique identification Number or Aadhar number. It helps you to eliminate the process of sending ITR – V to CPC(Centralised Processing Centre) in Bangalore.

 

Although PAN Card will be linked with Aadhar number only , if your personal details like Name, Gender, Date of Birth matches with Aadhar data as per PAN Data.

 

Income Tax Department will validate your name, date of birth, gender as per PAN and Aadhar Number with Centralized database of Unique Identification Authority of India(UIDAI). Please note that if the details do not match, the Aadhar number will not be linked to your PAN.

 

After the completion of Aadhar and PAN number linking process, you can e-verify your return if your mobile number is registered with UIDAI.

 

Please be noted that once you linked your Pan number with Aadhar card, you cann’t delinked it. As of now Income Tax Department has not given the facility to delinking PAN number with Aadhar. Follow the simple guide to link PAN number or Income Tax Return with Aadhar number(UID):

  • Login to income tax e-Filing portal.
  • Clipboard01
  • When you logged into the e-filling portal, a pop up window appears on your screen to link your Aadhar Number.

    I am a honest south Indian and I am unable to link PAN data with aadhar due to name difference – My PAN card is issued many years ago. At that as per the insistence of authority I had to provide full expanded name on application and it is appearing on PAN data and short name (name with initial) printed on PAN card as I opted to avoid lengthy name. The name on aadhar card is printed as per the name printed on PAN card (name with initial). When I approached NSDL for correction in PAN data as per aadhar data they refused to do as no procedure for the same, Linking aadhar data with PAN data is good but my request to govt is to look into this technical problems coming in PAN card issued prior to the implementation of Aadhar card and instruct the PAN Card issuing authorities to correct the PAN Data / PAN card as per aadhar card so as to facilitate the linking for honest people
