New Delhi: The Income Tax Department has introduced a one-page form for taxpayers to manually apply for linking their Aadhaar with Permanent Account Number (PAN), apart from the available online and SMS facilities.
An individual will have to mention both PAN and Aadhaar numbers, the spelling of the names mentioned on them and give a signed declaration that the Aadhaar number provided in the application form has “not been provided” by them for the purpose of linking it with “any other PAN”.
They will also have to undertake a declaration stating they have “not been allotted any other PAN than the one mentioned” on the form.
The I-T department has made it clear that taxpayers without Aadhaar number or its enrolment ID will not be able to e-file their income tax return (ITR) from on Saturday even as it has said that in “no case” any PAN will be invalidated.
Aadhaar has also been made mandatory for applying for PAN with effect from July 1.
