The government has made it mandatory to link PAN with one’s 12-digit unique identification number Aadhaar. However, before linking the PAN with the Aadhaar number, your Aadhaar needs to be updated. The linking will be hindered if Aadhaar is not updated or the initials on your PAN card does not match with the Aadhaar data.
Initials on PAN card not matching Aadhaar data while filing ITR? Here’s how you can update your Aadhaar
In a new initiative by the Government of India, everyone is required to compulsorily mention one’s Aadhaar number in the ITR form and PAN. Moreover, all the existing PAN card holders are required to provide their Aadhaar number to the I-T department. However, most people are finding it difficult to link PAN with Aadhaar.
If you have faced issues like incorrect name, incorrect father’s name or date of birth printed on your Aadhaar card, then you can get it rectified by visiting the UIDAI’s official website. You can also download the Aadhaar update form and visit the nearby Aadhaar Seva Kendra.
