How To Link PAN Card With Aadhaar

10 July 2024

Aadhaar and PAN are important documents. One serves as identity proof, while the other is used to track the inflow and outflow of your money

In June 2023, the government made it mandatory to link the two documents to make it easier to track financial transactions of an individual

Those who failed to do so, their PAN card was made inoperative. After several reminders and extensions, the last date was fixed as May 31, 2024

If you haven't linked your PAN cards with Aadhaar, you won't be able to get your income tax return processed. It is a mandatory requirement

To link the two documents now, individuals need to pay a penalty at income tax e-filing portal through net banking, debit card and NEFT/RTGS

After making the payment, proceed to link your PAN with Aadhaar card immediately

Visit the e-filing portal of the income tax department, and click on 'Link Aadhaar' under Quick Links option

Enter your PAN and Aadhaar number and click the 'Validate' button

You will need to enter your name as per the Aadhaar card and mobile number, which will receive the OTP

After filling the OTP, the request for PAN Aadhaar linking will be sent to the UIDAI for validation
