How to link Aadhaar with Income Tax Return (ITR)

Income Tax Department has started linking Permanent Account Number (PAN) with the unique identification Number Aadhaar, a step that will eliminate sending ITR – V to CPC.

However, Aadhaar Number can be lined only if Name, Date of Birth, Gender as per Aadhaar Card matches with the details as per PAN data.

Income Tax Department will validate your name, date of birth, gender as per PAN and Aadhaar Number with UIDAI. Please note that if the details do not match, the Aadhaar number will not be linked to your PAN.

    I don’t see necessity of linking Aadhaar with PAN when you have option to send ITR V to CPC

  • Murugavelu Doraiswamy

    My name in Aadhar Card is printed as Murugavelu.D and in PAN Card it is Murugavelu Doraiswamy. My initial is ‘D’, which is used in all my records except in PAN Card. The expansion of ‘D’ is Doraiswamy, I tried to link Aadhar to PAN, it is not linking, please provide some suggestions.

      Even i have the same issue.. Have you got any solutions?

      • simplifiedlaws

        You have no other option but to change name in aadhaar by
        providing proof of correct name. You can
        always use initials on all other places except where it is mandatory to provide
        full name.
