Repercussions Faced If PAN Card And Aadhar Are Not Linked

The Government Of India has made it mandatory for all PAN card holders to link their PAN
cards with their Aadhar card. The deadline for the same which was earlier 31st August has now
been extended to 31st December 2017 by the Finance Ministry.

Pan Card, Aadhar card, Aadhar linking


If the two cards are not linked, then one will face difficulty in processing their Income Tax Returns or ITR. It will only be processed once the PAN and the Aadhar are linked. This means that despite filing of ITR you will not receive the refund. Quoting the words of the Income Tax department, “ITR will not be taken up for processing under section 143(1) of the Income Tax act until the PAN is linked to Aadhar.”

The Aadhar card is also mandatory for applying for a PAN card and also for availing various
subsidies from the Government.

The Aadhar card is a 12 digit unique biometric authentication card, which the UIDAI issued,
whereas the PAN card is an alphanumeric card of 10 digits and is allotted to entities and
individuals by the Income Tax Department and is required for filing returns.

If a person who is applying for the death certificate is unaware of the deceased, he is required  to provide a certificate stating that the deceased person does not possess an Aadhar number to the best of his knowledge.Any false declaration, however, would be treated as an offence as per provisions of the Aadhar act,2016 and also the Registration of Birth and Death act,1969.

Along with the Aadhar number of the spouse or parents, applicants Aadhar number shall also be collected, citing a notification issued by a Registrar General Of India (RGI).According to the notification issued by the RGI under Ministry of Home Affairs use of Aadhar of the applicants of death certificate will result in ensuring the details provided by relatives, dependants of the deceased.

Your PAN Card could be invalid without Aadhar by December (Latest News)

As per the Indian Government’s recent decision, all PAN cards that are not linked to Aadhar card will become invalid after 31st December, 2017.

PAN Card, Aadhar card, Aadhaar card

Presently, the PAN card is required by taxpayers to file their income tax returns. Also, many citizens, such as students, use the PAN card as a document for identity proof. However, the Government has found there are many fraudulent and fake PAN cards. This error and the fraudulent use of multiple PAN cards under a single person’s name will be rectified by linking it to the Aadhar card, which has a unique 12 digit biometric identification number.

At present, approximately 98% of the population has their Aadhar card or has applied for it. Thus, the time frame till the end of the year for people to apply and get their card is adequate. The aim of introducing the Aadhar card and its unique identification number was to plug leaks in the distribution of the Government’s benefits as well as entitlements. With that objective in mind, the Government has linked many of its projects, schemes and subsidies with the Aadhar card. For instance, the Government’s midday meal scheme is linked to Aadhar card. Recently, the Government has also made submission of Aadhar card details mandatory for applying for a PAN card or for filing of income tax returns.

PAN cards are currently mandatory for travel or hotel bills made via cash transactions which exceed Rs 50,000 and also for purchasing jewellery worth more than Rs 2 lakhs irrespective of it being a cash or card transaction. Even, large cash deposits in banks can be made only by submitting PAN card number and details. However, the problem that has come to the Government’s notice is that there are many duplicate and fraudulent PAN cards that fraudsters are using. For instance, multiple fake PAN card numbers of the same individual are being used to file multiple tax returns.

The proposed introduction of unique and biometric Aadhar card for this purpose, such as tax returns filing and other official submissions, will eliminate duplicate PAN cards and fraudulent acts. In fact, Arun Jaitley, the finance minister, indicated at making the Aadhar card compulsory for all issues related to income tax.

By making Aadhar card mandatory, there will be a transparency in the income tax filing system, since Aadhar is a foolproof document of identification, thereby helping eliminate duplicates, and even helping trace those who launder money or evade tax.

The next agenda of the government is to decide a suitable time period within which citizens carry out the linking of their PAN card with Aadhar card, most likely being end of the year.

Online E-verification of Income Tax Return Using Aadhar Card

In this article we are going to lay down a complete guide on how E-verification of Income Tax Return can be done using your Aadhar Card.

After filing of the Income Tax Returns or ITR, it needs to be verified. Till now, the verification was done by downloading the ITR – Verification (ITR-V) online after filing the returns, from the e-filing portal, signing the downloaded copy and posting it to the Centralized Processing Center (CPC) located in Bengaluru.

However, now the ITR can be verified by anyone using the 3 methods allowed by the Income Tax Department. These are:

  • By using Aadhar card.
  • By availing netbanking.
  • By using EVC or electronic verification code.

For verifying via Aadhar card, the PAN card and the Aadhar card need to be linked.

Process to link Aadhar card with the PAN card for verification of ITR :

For verifying ITR via Aadhar card, you require the Aadhar card to be linked to your PAN card. Once they are linked, the ITR can be verified via the mobile phone number registered under the Aadhar card. The linking of both the cards is possible only if the name, date of birth and gender on both the cards match. For instance, if the Aadhar card of a female is in the post-martial name and the PAN card in the maiden name, then the linking is not possible unless the change has been made to the relevant card. Another criterion for linking both the cards is that the mobile phone number you are currently using must be the same as the one registered with the Aadhar card. Once the criteria are matched, the linking of Aadhar to PAN card can be done as follows –

E-verification of Income Tax Return


  • Next hover the cursor on the tab titled ‘Profile Settings
  • Click on the option ‘Link Aadhaar’ and enter your Aadhaar number. Now press the tab ‘Link Now
  • Both, the Aadhar and the PAN card will be linked if details like the date of birth, gender and name are the same in both the places

E-verification of Income Tax Return using Aadhar number :

Post the linking of Aadhar to the Income Tax website profile, e-verification of the Income Tax Returns can be done by generating an Aadhar OTP. The steps are as follows –

  • On the Income Tax e-Filing website upload your income tax returns.
  • After the returns are filed, you will be given the following options to choose from, in order to verify the returns –  
  1. “I already have an EVC to verify my returns”
  2.  “I do not have an EVC and would like to generate EVC to e-verify my return”
  3. “I would like to generate Aadhar OTP to e-verify my return”
  4. “I would like to send ITR-V/ I would like to e-verify later”
  • Select the option for generating an Aadhar OTP (option 3). On the mobile number registered on your Aadhar, you will receive a one-time password which will be valid only for ten minutes.
  • On the website, enter the OTP received on the registered mobile number.
  • If the OTP submitted is correct, a message that says ‘Return successfully e-verified. Download the Acknowledgement’ will appear. A similar acknowledgement will be emailed to your email address as well. It can be downloaded and saved on the computer by clicking on the ‘Download’ button.

Through the above steps one can verify and acknowledge one’s ITR without having to post the ITR-V copy to Bangalore based CPC.

E-verification of Income Tax Return using EVC :

ITR can be verified online even if your Aadhar card is not linked to the PAN card. This can be done by using the electronic verification code or EVC.

The EVC is generated either via the registered mobile number and email ID or through your net banking account.

Steps to generate EVC are –

  • An EVC can be generated in 2 ways- one is to generate one immediately upon filing returns. Another is to visit the portal menu and click on the ‘e-file’ tab.
  • If you select the ‘e-file’ menu to generate an EVC, then select the option ‘Generate EVC’, whereby a 10 digit EVC code will be sent on your registered mobile number as well as email address. Upon receiving the code you can choose the option ‘I already have an EVC to e-verify my return’ after filing the income tax return.
  • If you wish to first file your returns and then generate an EVC, you can choose the option ‘I do not have an EVC and would like to generate EVC’ out of the 4 options displayed on the screen.
  • On the next page you can enter the 10 digit EVC generated and verify the return and also download the acknowledgment.
