The Aadhaar number and PAN card are both unique identification numbers used in India. The government has made it mandatory to link Aadhaar with PAN card in order to prevent tax evasion and other financial malpractices. The linking of Aadhaar with PAN helps to eliminate duplicate or fake PAN cards and allows the government to keep track of an individual’s financial transactions. It also facilitates the easy processing of income tax returns and refunds. To link Aadhaar card with PAN card, you can either do it online through the income tax e-filing portal or by sending an SMS to a designated number. It is important to ensure that the details on both documents are accurate and match each other before initiating the linking process.
Once linked, the government will be able to track all financial transactions made by an individual, making it easier to detect fraudulent activities and ensure compliance with tax laws.
