The government recently made it compulsory to link your Aadhaar card with PAN.It was reported that taxpayers were finding it difficult as their names did not match in both systems.
The Income Tax Department has made it easy for taxpayers to link their PAN with Aadhaar with just a 2 step process which does not even require? to login or register at?the e- filing?website.
Steps : 1
Just go to www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in and click on the link on the left pan- Link Aadhaar ( Highlighted with yellow colour in below screenshot ).
Step : 2
Enter PAN, Aadhaar no. and ENTER NAME EXACTLY AS GIVEN IN AADHAAR CARD (avoid spelling mistakes) and submit.
Important Note :
In case of any minor mismatch in Aadhaar name provided, Aadhaar OTP will be required. Please ensure that the date of birth and gender in PAN and Aadhaar are exactly same.
In a rare case where Aadhaar name is completely different from name in PAN, then the linking will fail and taxpayer will be prompted to change the name in either Aadhaar or in PAN database.
