Income tax returns: Here’s why you must link PAN with Aadhaar

You have to link PAN with Aadhaar even if you are not liable to pay tax or file income tax returns.

Aadhar

If my total income is below Rs 2.5 lakh a year, do I still have to link my PAN card with Aadhaar card?

– Mukuntharajan A.V

Assuming your total taxable income for FY 2016-17 is below Rs 2.5 lakh, as per the income tax provisions it is not mandatory for you to file return of income. But as per the announcements made by the ministry of finance, every person who has been allotted PAN as on July 1, 2017 and who is eligible to obtain Aadhaar number shall link the Aadhaar number with the PAN, failing which the PAN would become invalid from the date which would be notified by the government.
l My name in my Aadhaar card is Asokakumar and in PAN card it is Asokakumar Kavunkal. My date of birth in Aadhaar is 16.11.1954 and in PAN it is wrongly given as 16.11.1956. Please advise me how I can correct details of the PAN card.

Correction of name and DOB in the PAN card can be made through an online application form which is available on the NSDL website. Here is the direct link (https://tin.tin.nsdl.com/pan/correctiondsc.html) to understand the process of correction of data in your PAN card. Once the online form is submitted, a signed copy of the acknowledgement along with photograph and proof of existing PAN, proof of identity, address and date of birth is to be sent to NSDL at ‘NSDL e-Governance Infrastructure Limited, 5th floor, Mantri Sterling, Plot No. 341, Survey No. 997/8, Model Colony, Near Deep Bungalow Chowk, Pune – 411016’ for further processing. Alternatively, one can file the PAN correction form along with the necessary documents at PAN card centre.

                                      None details from you either cards will change. your cards are just linked as per minimum qualified details available on both cards. That's it.
