Taxpayer can link their Aadhaar no. with PAN even if there is mismatch in name of taxpayer as appeared in Aadhaar and PAN. There is no need to login or be registered on E-filing website.
In case of any minor mismatch in Aadhaar card name provided by taxpayer as compared to the actual data in Aadhaar card, One Time Password (Aadhaar OTP) will be sent to the mobile number registered with Aadhaar number. Taxpayers should ensure that the date of birth and gender in PAN and Aadhaar card are exactly the same. However, in cases where Aadhaar name is completely different from name in PAN, Aadhaar will not be linked and taxpayer will be required to change the name in either Aadhaar data or in PAN database
Steps to link Aadhaar with PAN in case of name mismatch:-
Go to E-filing website, https://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in
Click on "Link Aadhaar" under services column.
Enter "PAN', Aadhaar Number, Name as per Aadhaar and Captcha Code and click on 'Link Aadhaar".
After submitting these details, a success message is displayed confirming the linking of Aadhaar number with PAN. A confirmation email is also sent to the registered email id of the person.
Please ensure that the date of birth, Gender and Aadhaar number is per Aadhaar details.
If date of Birth and Gender fully match and Name as per Aadhaar is not exactly matching then user has to additionally provide Aadhaar OTP to proceed with partial Name Matching.
If Your Aadhaar is already linked with PAN with Same name and want to verify the correctness, the alert message will be displayed on to the screen "Your PAN is already linked to the Aadhaar Number"
