Here's how you can link PAN with Aadhaar

People who fail to do so will no longer be able to file their income tax and their PAN will no longer be operative.

January 02, 2020 / 04:47 PM IST

The Income Tax Department has once again extended the deadline for linking PAN with Aadhaar to March 31, 2020. The previous deadline was December 31, 2019.

The Central Board of Direct Taxes had declared that all Indian citizens must link their PAN and Aadhaar card before the said deadline. People who fail to do so won't be able to file their income tax and their PAN will no longer be operative.

You can check PAN-Aadhaar linking status on the Income Tax India website. Click on ‘Link Aadhaar’ and then, click on ‘Click here’, which is above the section where you fill your PAN and Aadhaar details. The new webpage will ask you for your PAN and Aadhaar number. Fill in the details and click on ‘View Link Aadhaar status’. If your PAN-Aadhaar is linked, the screen should show a confirmation message with the last four digits of your Aadhaar number.

In case you haven’t applied for linking PAN to Aadhaar card, there are two ways to do it.

  • PAN-Aadhaar card linking via SMS

  • PAN-Aadhaar card linking via Income Tax India website 

For linking Aadhaar card and PAN via SMS, the user needs to ensure that both the documents are registered under the same name. Your mobile number should also be the same as the one registered for Aadhaar.
