Now Government has made it compulsory to link your Aadhaar with PAN and before doing linking PAN Card details should match with aadhaar card details and in case if there is any mismatch in PAN details and Aadhaar details person has to update any one of the details which he thinks is wrong and not matching with other.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to power in 2014 with promise to fight corruption and Central Government is taking every possible step to curb and control the corruption and in this process, government has mandated the linking of Aadhar with PAN for individual and process of linking Aadhaar to PAN number is very simple and can be done directly through the Income Tax India Website. Linking is compulsory for Individual as Aadhaar is issued to Individual only.

Also before updating, we can check the details available with Income Tax department using Name and Date of Birth and person can directly download the Aadhaar card from UIDIA Website. In case if individual finds mistake in both aadhar and PAN card details then first he should update the AADHAR card details online or by visiting any aadhaar help centre in their city and once aadhaar  details are updated it will be very easy to update PAN details using aadhaar based e-verification process, please note that individual must update his or her mobile number in aadhaar card as every verification is OTP based and it won’t be possible to update PAN online without updating mobile number in aadhaar card. Individual can update aadhaar card details for free and government never charge any fees for updating aadhaar card and Rs.110/-(93+18% GST)
