Income Tax department of Government of India has launched a new facility to link Aadhaar Number with your PAN card number. Linking PAN with Aadhaar has become mandatory for filing IT returns now.
Link through e-filing website:
Income tax website's e-filing website https://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in/ has created a new link on its homepage making the process easy for all individuals. The link just requires a person to punch in his / her PAN number, Aadhaar number and the exact name as given in the Aadhaar card.
Matching with Aadhaar data:
After verification of Aadhaar from the UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India), the linking with PAN will be confirmed on the website. In case of any minor mismatch in Aadhaar name provided, Aadhaar OTP (one time password) will be required to confirm.
The OTP will be sent on the registered mobile number and email of the individual. You need to enter the OTP on the web page and confirm the credentials.
