As we all know that it has been mandatory to link the Aadhaar with PAN by 1st July, 2017, many of us would be wondering about how to link the Aadhaar with PAN.
Let me tell you that linking Aadhaar with PAN is a very easy process now and hardly takes 60 seconds to be done. Yes you heard me right! Only 60 Seconds!
Here I would also like to mention that now it is possible to link Aadhaar with PAN even if the names on Aadhaar and PAN are different. For example, if your name on Aadhaar is “Arvind Kumar Yadav” and name on PAN is “Arvind Kr Yadav” or “Arvind Yadav” then also you can link your Aadhaar with your PAN without correcting the name first. This was not possible earlier but now the Income Tax Department has given relaxation in this aspect.
Now let us jump straight to the process of linking Aadhaar with PAN and I will dictate the same step by step below:
Go to income tax official website https://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in/ and on the home page itself you will find the link “Link Aadhar New!” to link Aadhar with PAN. You need to click on the link.
The next screen will look like this
Fill in the details as asked in the appropriate spaces and then click on “Link Aadhaar” and you are done.
So you just linked your Aadhaar with your PAN in less than 60 seconds!
