Pan Card, Aadhar card, Aadhar linking

Repercussions

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.

link Pan card to Aadhar card, Pan card, Aadhar card, Aadhaar card

 

  • If you are already registered, Log-in into the Income Tax department’s e-filing portal by entering your PAN as user ID, date of birth and password.
  • Upon logging into the e-filing portal, a pop-up page will appear suggesting you to link your PAN card to your Aadhar card.
  • Click on the pop-up. On the page, your details, such as name, gender, date of birth, will be mentioned already in accordance with the details submitted while registering for the e-filing portal.
  • If no pop up window appears on logging go to profile setting and click on ‘link Aadhar’.
  • The system will Cross check whether the details mentioned on the screen match with those on your Aadhar card.
  • If the details match, Enter your Aadhar card number in the respective space provided and subsequently fill in the captcha code. Next, click on the button present below titled ‘link now’.
  • A pop-up window with the message “ Aadhar-PAN linking is completed successfully” will appear, This confirms the linking of your PAN card with your Aadhar Card.

What is PAN Card ?

Pan Card is a blue colored card , about the size of the debit card. It bears a unique ten character code and link all the transactions which are taxable under a single entity. Thus enabling the Government to keep track of all the transactions in a convenient manner. Even though the primary use of the PAN card is filing income tax returns by Indians and foreigners in the country, alike, it is also used as a proof of identity as well as of age.

What are it’s Drawbacks ?

Even though the PAN card has a unique code and is an identification proof, there are a few drawbacks because of which the Government has proposed to link the PAN cards with Aadhar cards. The drawbacks include inability to detect tax evasion, multiple PAN cards for a single individual and also tedious procedure to file income tax returns.

Benefit’s of Linking Pan Card to Aadhar Card ?

We often wonder that why it is Aadhar card that is becoming the basis of identity of every individual in India. The very fact that Aadhar is unique 10 digit number card & contains the demographic as well as the biometric information of the individual it’s nearly impossible to duplicate it. So any other account like PAN card or voter ID which are not linked to Aadhar card will automatically become null and void & hence helping government to eradicate fake cards from the system.

By linking the PAN card to the Aadhar card, problem of tax evaders would be reduced. Due to Aadhar linking, the tax evading individuals would be easily identified along with their name and address information. The use of multiple PAN cards in an individual’s name to evade tax on certain taxable transactions cannot happen if the account is linked to Aadhar card. Also, the process of filing of income tax returns in itself would become easier after linking the PAN card to Aadhar Card because it would no longer be mandatory to send the Income Tax filing acknowledgement to the Income Tax department.

What is Aadhar Card ?

Aadhar card is a proof of identification as well as address of an individual and has a 12 digit unique number. The Government aimed at having a single document that can be used as identity proof and which contained biometric and demographic information of the individual. That is how the Aadhar card came into being.

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.
