Link Aadhar to Pan Card

Aadhaar card is a verifiable 12-digit identification number issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI). It acts as a proof of identity and a proof of residence. PAN or Permanent Identification Number is a ten-character alphanumeric identifier issued by the Income Tax Department under the supervision of the Central Board of Direct Tax (CBDT). It is necessary for income tax filings and also acts as an identity proof.

The Supreme Court in its verdict, stated that quoting Aadhar card is mandatory for applying Income Tax returns and for applying for a new PAN. Section 139 AA (2) of the Income Tax Act states that every person having PAN as on 1 July 2017 and is eligible to obtain Aadhaar must intimate his Aadhaar number to tax authorities.
