aadhaar, aadhaar pan, aadhaar card linking, pan card linking, how to do aadhaar pan card linking, aadhaar news, aadhaar latest news, pan e filling, income tax department, it department, how to link aadhaar card, aadhaar card linking procedure The government had said that for filing one’s tax return on the income tax website, it would be sufficient to quote one’s Aadhaar number or Aadhaar enrolment ID.

By this time you must have filed your income tax return for the Financial Year 2016-17 and most of you also have linked your Aadhaar number with the PAN card, as directed by the Income Tax Department. However, if you have still not linked the two cards for some unavoidable reasons, then it is time to do so as today is the deadline for linking Aadhaar with PAN.

It may be noted that earlier the deadline for filing income tax return as well as linking Aadhaar with PAN was July 31st. However, in order to facilitate the e-filing of return, the government had extended the deadline for tax filing from July 31 to the 5th August, 2017, and had also extended the last date for the linking of PAN with Aadhaar to August 31.

The government had said that for filing one’s tax return on the income tax website, it would be sufficient to quote one’s Aadhaar number or Aadhaar enrolment ID and linking the two was not required for those who hadn’t already done it.

Still, you are required to link your Aadhaar number with the PAN card till August 31 because if you fail to do so, your income tax returns will not be processed. “The returns will not be processed until the linkage of Aadhaar with PAN is done,” CBDT had earlier said.

Although there was some confusion in view of the recent Supreme Court verdict on privacy. However, UIDAI CEO Ajay Bhushan clarified that “taxpayers will have to link their PAN with Aadhaar by the stipulated deadline, which is 31st August, as the Supreme Court verdict on privacy has no bearing on the requirement.”

No need to mention that taxpayers have to link their Aadhaar number with the PAN card by August 31. Thankfully, linking your Aadhaar number with your PAN card has now been made very easy. You can link your Aadhaar number with PAN by any of the two ways: Using SMS facility and using facility on e-Filing portal – http://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in.

1. Linking Aadhaar number with PAN using SMS facility:

Taxpayers who wants to link their Aadhaar number with PAN are required to send SMS to 567678 or 56161 in the following format:

UIDPAN<space><12 digit Aadhaar><space><10 digit PAN>

Example of SMS to 567678 or 56161:

UIDPAN 111122223333 AAAPA9999Q

Aadhaar number will be linked with PAN if the name of the taxpayer is identical to Aadhaar and PAN.

Watch:

2. Linking Aadhaar number with PAN using e-Filing portal:

# With your Aadhar and PAN card handy, go to the Income Tax e-Filing portal and register (if you haven’t done yet). Registered members can log in using their ID, password, and date of birth.

# Usually, a pop-up window prompting you to link PAN with Aadhaar card appears, but if you have activated a pop-up blocker, then you need to click on ‘Link Aadhar’.

# Submit your details including PAN, Aadhaar number, and name as per Aadhaar. Verify the captcha and click ‘Link Aadhaar’ button.

# Upon successful validation of your Aadhaar, it will be automatically linked to your PAN.

# A pop-up will verify that the linking has been successfully processed.

    A centralized and inter-linked biometric database like Aadhaar will lead to profiling and self-censorship, endangering freedom. Personal data gathered under the Aadhaar program is prone to misuse and surveillance. A centralized and interlinked database can lead to commercial abuse. Aadhaar project has created a vulnerability to identi-ty fraud, even identi-ty theft. Easy harvesting of biometrics traits and publicly-available Aadhaar numbers increase the risk of impersonation, especially online and banking fraud. Centralized databases can be hacked. Biometrics can be cloned, copied and reused. Thus, biometrics can be faked. High-resolution cameras can capture your fingerprints and iris information from a distance. Every eye hospital will have iris images of its patients. You can change your password if it is compromised. But if someone gets a copy of your biometric data, which can be used for authentication, what would you do?

      Biometrics can be cloned, copied and reused. Thus, BIOMETRICS CAN BE FAKED. High-resolution cameras can capture your fingerprints and iris information from a distance. Every eye hospital will have iris images of its patients. So another person can clone your fingerprints and iris images without your knowledge, and the same can be used for authentication. If the Aadhaar scheme is NOT STOPPED by the Supreme Court, the biometric features of Indians will soon be cloned, misused, and even traded.

      UK’s Biometric ID Database was dismantled. Why the United Kingdom's biometrics-linked National Identi-ty Card project to create a centralized register of sensitive information about residents similar to Aadhaar was scrapped in 2010?? The reasons were the massive threat posed to the privacy of people, the possibility of a surveillance state, the dangers of maintaining such a huge centralized repository of personal information, and the purposes it could be used for, and the dangers of such a centralized database being hacked. The other reasons were the unreliability of such a large-scale biometric verification processes, and the ethics of using biometric identification.

        The US Social Security Number (SSN) card has no biometric details, no photograph, no physical description and no birth date. All it does is confirm that a particular number has been issued to a particular name. Instead, a driving license or state ID card is used as an identification for adults. The US government does not collect the biometric details of its own citizens for the purpose of issuing Social Security Number. The US collects the fingerprints of only those citizens who are involved in any criminal activity (it has nothing to do with SSN), and the citizens of other countries who come to the US.
