How to Link Your Aadhaar With PAN Card. Follow These Steps
the Finance Ministry had kept July 31st as the last day for linking the Biometric Identifier Aadhaar Card and Permanent Account Number, which was later postponed to August 31st

New Delhi: Today is the last day to link your Aadhar Card with Permanent Account Number (PAN). From July 1 the linking of Aadhaar card and PAN card is compulsory for taxpayers. To file income tax returns, a taxpayer should have both Aadhar card and PAN card and must link both the documents before Saturday (June 30).

Here’s what you need to know about linking your Aadhaar and PAN cards:

How to Link Aadhaar with PAN Card

You can link your Aadhaar card with PAN by visiting the official website of Income Tax Department of India at www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in.

Step 1: Enter your Permanent Account Number.

Step 2: Enter your Aadhaar Card.

Step 3: Enter your name as per Aadhaar Card.

Step 4: Enter Date of Birth.

Step 5: Enter Captcha.

Step 6: Click on "Link Aadhaar."

You can also send an SMS to 56161 or 567678 from your Registered Mobile Number (RMN) of Aadhaar Card in this format: UIDPAN<12 digit Aadhaar><10 digit PAN>

What if You Fail to Link

The first impact is that you will not be able to file your ITR after July 1 2017, if you fail to link your Aadhaar with PAN. Secondly, if you do not link or fail to link your Aadhaar card with your PAN card, then your PAN card might be rendered invalid by December 2017.

Currently, 99% adult population in India is enrolled with Aadhaar and the government deems it possible that every adult will be covered by the end of 2017.

What If You Don’t have an Aadhaar Card

You can apply for the Aadhaar card and provide the application number as a document proving that you’ve applied for one.

Those who are not able to link their Aadhaar and PAN cards by July 1 will have the option to mention the UIDAI-provided number in the e-ITR and this will be considered a valid linking of the two unique numbers, a senior Income Tax Department official told PTI.

A number of queries and doubts have risen on the issue of Aadhaar-PAN linking in the wake of the government making it clear that Aadhaar will be a "must" for filing ITRs and obtaining a new PAN from July 1.
