Every individual is now required to compulsorily mention his Aadhaar number in the ITR form and PAN application from July 1 this year. The government has made it mandatory to link the existing Aadhaar numbers with the PAN cards of taxpayers with effect from July 1 and has also notified the rules. Moreover, all the existing PAN card holders are required to provide their Aadhaar number to the I-T department. However, linking one’s PAN with Aadhaar is actually not so easy. Most people are running for help in order to rectify every small mismatch.
If you are also facing issues like incorrect name, father’s name or date of birth printed on your Aadhaar card, then you can easily get it changed by visiting UIDAI’s official website. Else, you may also download the Aadhaar update form and visit the nearby Aadhaar Seva Kendra for submission.
How can you update the Aadhaar card?
If you want to rectify any change in your Aadhaar card, you have to visit the nearest enrollment center. No additional documents are required except your Aadhaar card. However, for getting corrections done, you may have to submit self-attested identity or address proofs. Make sure the ID proofs have the correct name, DOB mentioned as mentioned in your PAN card.
