How to Link Pan Card and Aadhar Card ?

Linking Aadhaar card and PAN card is made mandatory by the government of India as a measure to curb tax evasion and ensure that individuals do not hold multiple PAN cards under different names. It helps to create a more robust and accurate database of taxpayers and to prevent fraudulent activities such as obtaining multiple PAN cards for the same person.

Furthermore, linking Aadhaar and PAN makes it easier for the Income Tax Department to verify the identity of the taxpayers and to ensure that the information provided by them is accurate. It also facilitates the process of filing tax returns and receiving refunds as it enables the direct credit of refunds to the bank account linked with Aadhaar.

 To link your Aadhaar card and PAN card, you can follow these steps:

  • Visit the Income Tax e-filing website at
  • Click on the "Link Aadhaar" button on the homepage.
  • Enter your PAN, Aadhaar number, and name as mentioned on your Aadhaar card.
  • Enter the Captcha code and click on "Link Aadhaar".
  • If the details entered by you match with the details on your Aadhaar card, your Aadhaar and PAN card will be linked.

Alternatively, you can also link your Aadhaar card and PAN card by sending an SMS to 567678 or 56161 in the following format:

  • UIDPAN <12-digit Aadhaar number> <10-digit PAN number>
  • For example, if your Aadhaar number is 123456789012 and your PAN number is ABCDE1234F, you can send an SMS in the following format: UIDPAN 123456789012 ABCDE1234F
