INCOME TAX DEPARTMENT SIMPLIFIES LINKING PAN WITH AADHAR

The Income Tax (IT) Department has made it easy for taxpayers to link their
PAN with Aadhaar. Responding to grievances of taxpayers regarding
difficulties in linking PAN with Aadhaar as their names did not match in
both systems (e.g., names with initials in one and expanded initials in
another), the IT Department has come out with a simple solution now.

Taxpayers can go to

http://www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in

and click on the link on the Left Pane ➔ Link Aadhaar,
provide PAN, Aadhaar number and ENTER NAME EXACTLY AS GIVEN IN AADHAAR CARD (avoid
spelling mistakes) and Submit. After verification from UIDAI, the linking
will be confirmed.

In case of any minor mismatch in Aadhaar name provided by taxpayer when
compared to the actual data in Aadhaar, a One Time Password (Aadhaar OTP)
will be sent to the mobile registered with Aadhaar. Taxpayers should 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.

Profile settings and choose Aadhaar linking. The details as per PAN will be
pre-populated. Enter Aadhaar number and ENTER NAME EXACTLY AS GIVEN IN

Taxpayers are requested to use the simplified process to complete the
linking of Aadhaar with PAN immediately. This will be useful for

registered with Aadhaar.
