If you are trying to link your Aadhaar Card with the PAN Card but it is not happening, you need to check details registered with PAN and Aadhaar cards. If you want to link Aadhaar Card with PAN, you need to make sure that your demographic details such as date of birth, name and gender should match in both the documents.
Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) issues Aadhaar Card, which is a verifiable 12-digit identification number. It is issued free of cost. The Income Tax Department issues the ten-digit alphanumeric identifier which is Permanent Account Number (PAN). One must remember that each assessee — individual, firm, company etc – gets a unique PAN.
How can I match my PAN name and Aadhaar Card name?
Often people search for what would happen if names in PAN and Aadhaar Card mismatch. If your name is different in PAN and Aadhaar Card, you will face difficulties in linking your PAN and Aadhaar Card.
If there is a minor mismatch in the name registered with Aadhaar Card with that of PAN, you will get an Aadhaar One Time Password (OTP) on your mobile number that is registered with Aadhaar card. However, to get that OTP, PAN cardholders must ensure that details pertaining to gender and date of birth in Aadhaar and PAN remain the same. If names in the Aadhaar and PAN mismatch completely then the linking will fail. In that scenario, the concerned individual will need to make the necessary changes in either PAN database or Aadhaar.
