Link Aadhaar card to PAN Card

Link Aadhaar card to PAN Card

As per a Supreme Court judgement passed on 9 June 2017, if you have Aadhaar, it is mandatory to link it to PAN and mention the same in your tax returns. However, if you don’t have Aadhaar, you can e-file tax returns without the same for FY2016-17.

Now you can link your Aadhaar and PAN through SMS also. The Income Tax Department has urged taxpayers to link their Aadhaar with their PAN, using an SMS-based facility.It can be done by sending an SMS to either 567678 or 56161.

Send SMS to 567678 or 56161 from your registered mobile number in following format:

UIDPAN<SPACE><12 digit Aadhaar><Space><10 digit PAN>

Example: UIDPAN 321456789123 FDPLM2124M

You will get a reply from VN-NDLS

"Your request for Aadhaar {321456789123} PAN {FDPLM2124M} Seeding has accepted. Thank you for using our services."
