Aadhaar with PAN

Step by Step Guide on How to Link AADHAAR With PAN

The current government had been consistently urging every citizen to link Aadhaar with PAN. This is one of the many steps taken by the government recently towards curbing the ill practices relating to tax evasions. By linking the Aadhaar with PAN it will be easy for the Government to track all the financial transactions undertaken by an individual. The due date for linking both the documents has now been finally extended to 31st March 2018 to resolve the difficulties faced during the procedure and facilitate the linking so as to bring the populace under the radar as much as possible.

There are two methods to link the Aadhaar with PAN:

Method-1: By sending an SMS:

This is probably the easier way to link Aadhar with PAN. If the details of both PAN and Aadhar are identical and match perfectly then this method is recommended since you just need to send an SMS to 567678 or 56161 in this format:

UIDPAN<12 digit Aadhaar><10 digit PAN>

Example: UIDPAN 1234567891234567AAAA1234AA

Method-2: Through official Income tax e-filing website of Income Tax Department:

However, you can also link your PAN and Aadhaar by visiting the official income tax e-filing website of Income Tax Department, i.e. http://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in/home. Here, you will find an option as shown below, where you can click and proceed with the linking procedure.
