The government has decided to make Aadhaar number mandatory for filing of Income Tax returns as well as linking it with Permanent Account Number (PAN) card.
Register on the Income tax e-Filing portal if you already haven’t yet. If you are already registered at the income tax department’s e-Filing portal, log in using your ID, password and date of birth.
A pop up window will appear, prompting you to link your PAN card with Aadhaar card.
If pop up window not appear, you can go to Profile setting and opt the “Link Adhaar” button
You will have to add the necessary details like name your Date of Birth as per the PAN details as well as your gender. If you data is different that what’s mentioned on your PAN, the Aadhaar will not be linked to your PAN. Next thing to do is, to enter your 12 digit Aadhaar card number, then verify captcha and then click on “Link Aadhaar” button. Once your validation is successful, your Aadhaar will be successfully linked to your PAN.
You will get the message that your Aadhaar card has been successfully linked to your PAN card.
