The Government of India has made it mandatory to link your PAN Number with your Aadhaar card before June 30th, 2020. The decision to extend the deadline was taken due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Tax payers can now link their PAN & Aadhaar in two ways: 

  • Through the Income Tax e-filing Portal
  • By sending an SMS to 567678 or 56161

Most existing tax payers have their PAN & Aadhaar linked on the e-filing website since you have been filing your returns on this e-filing portal for a few years now. In case you have not done so, you can do it by clicking on the ‘Link Aadhaar’ option from the homepage of the e-filing portal.

You can also link your PAN and Aadhaar by sending an SMS in the prescribed format to 567678 or 56161. The format you have to use is:

UIDPAN SPACE 12 digit Aadhaar SPACE 10 digit PAN

For example, if your Aadhaar number is 123412341234 and PAN is ABCDP5678Q. Then you are required to send an SMS in the below format to 567678 or 56161

UIDPAN 123412341234 ABCDP5678Q

How to check PAN-Aadhaar linking status through the e-filing website?

It is very simple to check your PAN-Aadhaar linking status through the e-filing website:

  • You need to go to the official Income Tax e-filing website
  • On the left hand side of the page, you will see the option “Link Aadhaar”.
  • Once you click the option, it will take you to a page to link your PAN and Aadhaar.
  • On the top of the form, you will see the option to check the linking status. It will be a blinking “‘Click here’ to view the status if you have already submitted Link Aadhaar request”
  • Clicking on this option of checking status will take you to a different page. You just have to fill in the details of your PAN and Aadhaar number.
  • And click on “View Link Aadhaar Status” button. 
  • A notification will appear that will tell you about the status of linking.
  • If you get a message saying that your PAN & Aadhaar are not linked, you can follow the procedure to link them.

How to check PAN-Aadhaar linking status through SMS?

You can easily check the PAN & Aadhaar linking status through SMS. You just have to type an SMS in the prescribed format and send it to 567678 or 56161. The format you have to use is:

If the linking has been done, you will receive a message to this effect. If you get a message that the linking has not been done, you can follow the procedure to link them.
