Here’s how to do it:
A. Online linking
Step 1: Keep your PAN and Aadhaar card ready to enter details
Step 2: Visit the e-filing portal of the I-T department (www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in).
Step 3: Under the ‘Quick Links’ section, click on ‘Link Aadhaar’ on the left side of the webpage.
Step 4: You will be directed to a new page.
Step 5: Enter in the PAN, Aadhaar number and other required details like your name as per the Aadhaar card, etc.
Step 6: Put a tick on the box only if the birth year is mentioned in your Aadhaar card.
Step 7: Mark ‘I agree to validate my Aadhar details with UIDAI,’ if you agree to do so.
Step 8: Enter the captcha code on your screen (visually challenged users can request for one-time password, or OTP, instead of the captcha code. You will receive the OTP on your registered mobile number).
Step 9: Click on the ‘Link Aadhaar’ button and submit the request.
B. Via mobile phone:
Step 1: You can send SMS to 567678 or 56161 in the format: UIDPAN<12digit Aadhaar><10-digit PAN>
(Example, if your Aadhar number is 108956743120, and your PAN is ABCD1234F, then send type UIDAI space 108956743120 ABCD1234F and send it to 567678 or 56161.)
You will be notified once the PAN-Aadhaar linking is done successfully.
