How to Link PAN With Aadhar Card


  • You can link your Aadhaar and PAN via the e-filing website
  • For this to work, your PAN and Aadhaar details need to match
  • In case of a discrepancy, you will soon be able to link via OTP

Linking Aadhaar to your PAN for filing taxes is no longer optional. If you're trying to figure out how this is supposed to work, you've come to the right place. The good news is that linking PAN with Aadhar card is extremely simple to do. The option to add your Aadhaar to your income tax form alongside the PAN has been around for a couple of years now, which was brought in as a way by which people could easily verify their forms.

Head over to the Income Tax e-filing portal and follow these steps to link Aadhar to PAN:

  1. If you're new, then you'll need to click on Register Here and then enter your PAN details, and then create a password after verifying the OTP.
  2. If you have your credentials, click on Login here so you can link your PAN to Aadhar.
  3. Enter your PAN for User ID, the password, and the Captcha code, then click on Login.
  4. A popup window should appear asking you to link your Aadhaar. Enter your Aadhaar number, and the Captcha, and then click on Link now.
  5. In case you didn't see the popup window, you can still enter the details easily. Click on Profile Settings in the top menu.
  6. Next, find Link Aadhaar.
  7. Enter your Aadhaar number and click on Save to continue.

This will only work if the details on the PAN and the Aadhaar card match. However, the government has talked about ways that would make it easier to link your PAN card and Aadhaar card in case of discrepancies, by letting you upload a scan of your PAN card, or register via OTP on your linked mobile number. These options don't appear to be active yet, but are expected to be available soon.
