The Finance Act, 2017 has made it mandatory to quote your Aadhaar number while filing your income tax return with effect from 1 July 2017. For this purpose, you need to link your Aadhaar with the permanent account number (PAN). However, many were finding it difficult to link Aadhaar with PAN, due to details mismatching on these two documents. In order to solve this problem, Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has come out with a simple solution.

Link your Aadhaar

Minor discrepancies like different names in the two documents—say names with initials in one and expanded initials in another —were earlier creating problems. This has now been solved.

To link your Aadhaar with PAN, just go to www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in and click on the tab ‘Link Aadhaar’ on the left-hand side of the website. First, fill out your PAN and Aadhaar number; then enter your name exactly as mentioned in Aadhaar and then submit it. After verification of details from the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), the linking will be confirmed.

However, if there is any minor mismatch in your Aadhaar name, a one-time password (OTP) will be sent to your Aadhaar-registered mobile number. Make sure that the date of birth and gender in PAN and Aadhaar are exactly the same. There is no need to even login or be registered on the e-filing website.
