It’s been some time that the Income Tax Department made it compulsory to link the two important documents – Aadhaar Card and PAN Card. As per the directive, if your Aadhaar Card is not linked to your PAN Card, then the later will stand invalid.
However, if the two documents are linked, you can take the liberty of quoting your Aadhaar number, in case you do not have your PAN number handy.
If you are one of those who has been there and done that and now want to check the status whether the two documents are linked or not, you need to follow the simple process.
Enter your PAN number and Aadhaar number
Click on ‘View Link Aadhaar Status’
The status of the linking will be displayed on the screen.
You can also check the status of Aadhaar-PAN linking via SMS. Just type your Aadhaar number and PAN number in the following format and send it to 567678 or alternatively on 56161.
UIDPAN<12 digit Aadhaar number><10 digit PAN number>
You will receive the status of the linking via SMS.
