Linking of Aadhaar, PAN made easy

New Delhi, April 9

Individuals struggling to link their Permanent Account Number (PAN) with Aadhaar because of differently spelled names can now simply upload a scanned copy of PAN to get the work done.

The tax department is also planning to introduce an option on the e-filing portal through which taxpayers can choose to link Aadhaar without changing the name by opting for a one-time password (OTP), provided the year of birth of the person matches in both documents.

With the linking of PAN with Aadhaar being made mandatory, individuals can log on to e-filing website of the Income Tax Department or NSDL, but the seeding cannot happen if the name is differently spelt in two cards—like use of full name in PAN and initials in Aadhaar. In such cases, the government has allowed a simple uploading of a scanned copy of PAN on the Aadhaar website. The tax department would start educating taxpayers from this week through media outreach on ways to link PAN with Aadhaar. — PTI
