Let us understand the process of linking PAN to Aadhaar

Video Transcription


Today we will find out how you can link your PAN to your Aadhaar. The government has set July 1, 2017, as the deadline for you to link your PAN with Aadhaar. If you have an Aadhaar number, you must quote it in your tax return. However, you can still file your return if you have applied for Aadhaar and therefore have an Aadhaar enrolment number.

There are two simple ways to link your PAN to Aadhaar database:

The first method to link both PAN and Aadhaar number with each other is through Income Tax Department’s e-filing portal. It is a Simple 2 Step Process.

  • In the first step you need to visit the Income Tax Department’s e-filing website and click ‘Link Aadhaar’ on top of the services section.
  • In the next step you need to provide PAN, Aadhaar Number, and name as written on Aadhaar Card. Then you need to enter Captcha code and press submit button.

Note: In case the user is visually challenged, he can request OTP instead of the captcha code.

The second method to link PAN with Aadhaar is through SMS

  • The Income Tax Department has also provided an SMS facility to link PAN with Aadhaar.
  • You can do it by sending a message to 567678 or 56161. The format for the message is as follows:
    You need to type UIDPAN<SPACE><12 digit Aadhaar ><Space><10 digit PAN>
  • For example, your message could look something like this:
    UIDPAN 121233223322 AAAAA4567E

The government has made the linking of these two identities very easy. So link your PAN with Aadhaar today to avoid any hassles in the future.
