The government has rolled out a facility to issue online PAN cards instantly on furnishing of Aadhaar details….
Individuals can go to the income tax department website and enter the Aadhaar number. A one-time password will be sent to the Aadhaar registered mobile number. The OTP will be used to verify Aadhaar details. Following this PAN will be allotted instantly and the individual can download the e-PAN card.
This will help the taxpayer to get rid of the hassle of filling up application forms and submitting it to the tax department and ease the process for tax administration of sending PAN cards to the taxpayer.
The government has made PAN-Aadhaar linkage mandatory.
