If you have still not linked the two, here are the simple means in which you can do so within deadline.
The I-T Department has shown three methods through which one can link PAN with Aadhaar: SMS, e-filing portal and while e-filing Income Tax Return.
Link PAN-Aadhaar via SMS
A PAN can be linked with an Aadhaar number using SMS. For this, the tax payer has to send an SMS to 567678 or 56161 in the following format, says the Income Tax Department website:
UIDPAN<space><12-digit Aadhaar><space><10-digit PAN>
For example, UIDPAN 111122223333 AAAPA9999Q
During filing Income Tax Return
A person can submit a request to link Aadhaar number with PAN while filing the income tax return (ITR) online (e-filing). The link of e-filing, according to the Income Tax Department, is available on the websites of NSDL (tin-nsdl.com) and UTIITSL (utiitsl.com), as well as the income tax e-filing portal.
Through e-filing portal
A taxpayer can link Aadhaar number with PAN online through the Income Tax Department’s e-filing portal, incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in, says the tweet. In order to do this, the user has to click on the “link Aadhaar” option on the portal’s homepage to proceed.
On the following page, the user can submit a request to link the two personal identification numbers by entering details such as full name along with his or her PAN and Aadhaar.
The I-T Department says that name, date of birth and gender as per PAN will be validated against one's Aadhaar details. Again, it asks the user to ensure that Aadhaar number and name as per Aadhaar are exactly the same as printed on the Aadhaar card.
Last month, the Supreme Court had said that linkage of PAN with Aadhaar was mandatory for the filing of Income Tax Returns (ITR), said a PTI report.
A bench comprising Justices AK Sikri and S Abdul Nazeer said the top court already decided the matter and upheld the section 139AA of the Income Tax Act.
