The government of India has made it mandatory to link your PAN card with Aadhaar Number. In case you do not do so by July 1, 2017 your PAN card would be invalid, which means you might not be able to file your tax returns. We had already written about How to link your PAN & Aadhaar if there was NO mismatch between the same. However there was linking issue in case the names did not match on PAN & Aadhar. Recently Income Tax Website has changed the linking form – so that it works for name mismatch cases too.
Step 1: Login to Income Tax efiling Website
Step 2: Select Profile Settings > Link Aadhaar
You get the below screen where you can fill in your Aadhaar Number and Name and submit “Link Aadhaar”
This would enable everyone with name mismatch to link there PAN card to Aadhaar number. However if you have problem with Date of Birth/gender mismatch you need to get it corrected in aadhaar/PAN.
Once this is done you would get an acknowledgement of the same as in the screen below.
Please ensure the Date of Birth; Gender & Aadhaar Number is as per Aadhaar details
If Name as per Aadhaar is not exactly matched then user has to additionally provide Aadhaar OTP or EVC to proceed with partial name match.
Once Aadhaar-PAN linking is completed, you can e-Verify your return using Aadhaar, if your mobile is registered with Aadhaar.

Method 2: without login in income tax website
You can also link your PAN & Aadhaar without login in income tax website. Click here to go to the relevant page.
You’ll get the form below. Fill and submit it.
Method 3: Using SMS
Try linking PAN & Aadhaar using SMS as stated below
At times some people are getting message “Technical Error at UIDAI. Please try again”. This may be due to overload on UADAI server. You can try after some time and you should be able to link your PAN to Aadhaar.

You’ll have to change details in either PAN or AAdhaar which ever is incorrect.
My date of birth, Gender are all same in pan and Aadhaar. My name in Pan is Mala Ramesh and in Aadhaar , it is Malaramesh. It is neither getting linked nor sends me any OTP. How to link pan and aadhaar now.
2 Ways – either change the name in PAN/AAdhaar or try offline method.
