The deadline to link Aadhaar to PAN card, which was initially 31 December 2017, had been further extended to 31 March 2018 to facilitate the process. However, if you haven’t done it yet, we are here to help you out.
You can easily link your Aadhaar to your PAN card, in a few simple ways.
The first and the obvious way to do this, of course, is an SMS.
You can send an SMS to 567678 or 56161 in the following format:
UIDPAN<12 digit Aadhaar><10 digit PAN>
Here’s an example: UIDPAN 123456789123 CHYPED78NS
However, remember that this will only work if you have already linked your Aadhaar to your mobile number.
You can link Aadhaar to PAN online through the Income Tax E-Filing website.
1: Visit the income tax e filing portal https://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in/ and click on the Link Aadhaar option on the left pane.
