Home Link Aadhaar with PAN Card Online
UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India) issues an Aadhaar card to each citizen of India containing a 12-digit number. As an identification number, it can be used to access a cardholder's details such as biometrics, contact information, and other information from the government database.
The enrolment process for obtaining an Aadhaar number is open to anyone living in India regardless of their age or gender. Enrollment is free of charge, however the document process support fee is 499 Rs. Upon enrollment, an individual's details are permanently stored in the database. Multiple Aadhaar numbers are not possible for the same individual.
If you hold a PAN and are eligible to get an Aadhaar number, or already have an Aadhaar number, then you should inform the Income Tax Department of this. Therefore, it is necessary to link PAN to Aadhaar. After 30 September, 2021, your PAN will become inoperative if you do not link your PAN with your Aadhaar.
The latest update
The deadline for linking Aadhaar with PAN has been extended from 30th June 2021 to 30th September 2021.
While income tax returns can be filed without linking, the tax department will not process them until PAN and Aadhaar are linked. The official e-filing website of the department allows people to link two identities, regardless of whether the names in the two databases are identical or not.
You can link the Aadhaar number with the PAN by logging on to the income tax e-filing website. On the income tax portal, there are two ways to do it.
Step 1: Go to www.incometax.gov.in.On scrolling down the home page, click on the ‘Our Services’ tab.
Step 2: Enter the following details:
If your Aadhaar card only mentions the year of your birth, check the box that says "I have only the year of my birth".
Click the box that says, "I agree to validate my Aadhaar details". To link Aadhaar, this check box must be selected.
A 6-digit One-Time Password will be sent to your mobile number. Please enter this OTP on the verification page on your screen. After entering the OTP, click on the 'Validate' button.
Step 1: Register yourself at the income tax e filing portal, if you are not already registered.
Step 2: Log in to the e-Filing portal of the Income Tax Department by entering the User ID.
Step 3: Confirm your secure access message and enter the password. And click ‘continue’ to proceed further.
Step 4: After logging in to the site, click on ‘Link Aadhaar’. Alternatively, you can go to My Profile and select 'Link Aadhaar' from the options available under 'Personal Details'.

Your PAN and Aadhaar information are mismatched, resulting in an authentication failure. There are a number of ways to check whether the data such as names, dates of birth, and mobile numbers are correct.
After entering your PAN and Aadhaar number, and your name, date of birth, and mobile number as per your Aadhaar card, the income tax department will send an OTP on the registered mobile number to enable the linking. In the event of a mismatch in your date of birth, you must update your Aadhaar data.
For the purpose of filing your income tax return, you must quote your Aadhaar number. When Aadhaar numbers are not available, the enrolment number for Aadhaar must be quoted instead.
The Aadhaar number can only be obtained by Indian residents. If you have lived in India for 182 days or more in the 12 months preceding the date of your Aadhaar application, you are considered a resident. NRIs cannot have their PAN linked to their Aadhaar.AN with Aadhaar.
