Simplest Method to Link Aadhaar With PAN & Solve Any Error

The government of India has made it mandatory for everyone to link their PAN cards with Aadhaar card numbers issued to them. If you have not yet linked your PAN card with Aadhaar card number issued to you, you will not be able to file Income Tax Return. Why does our Government force everyone to connect Aadhaar and PAN cards? It is a revolutionary step taken by the Government of India and Income Tax department to stop people from acquiring multiple PAN cards for the purpose of Tax evasion. Since there is no biometric information collected while applying for a PAN, it is possible to obtain more than one PAN card and use it without the Tax department's detection.

As biometric information is collected while registering for Aadhaar, it is impossible to have more than one Aadhaar card with a person. Any extra PAN cards with a person will be deleted automatically as they wouldn't be linked to Aadhaar number.
