The income tax department
of India has clarified that it will not process the yearly return if the permanent account number (PAN) is not linked with Aadhaar card
. It can be done online by visiting the official e-filing site of the tax department. It also helps Indian citizens to open a bank account, apply for gas connection, and to receive various government subsidies.
Link Aadhaar Number with PAN Card
There are two easy ways to linking Aadhaar number with the PAN card
. The account holder will have to either do it by logging into their e-filing
portal or directly from the Link Aadhaar
page of the tax department site:
Enter the Aadhaar Number
, and your name as per the Aadhaar card. Fill the Captcha Code
and click the Link Aadhaar
Please make sure that there is no mismatch in the date of birth, gender, and name on both the government documents.
In case there is a complete mismatch, PAN card will not be linked with the Aadhaar and Aadhaar-PAN linking failed
error message will appear on the screen.
