How to link PAN with Aadhaar?

  • Please link PAN with Aadhaar at the earliest, or trading and investing will be disabled after March 31st 2023 , as per this NSE circular ( PDF ) and this announcement from BSE. It can take up to 7 working days for the PAN to be updated in IT records. As per this press release from the Ministry of Finance, a fee of ₹500 up to three months from April 1st, 2022 and a fee of ₹1000 after that is to be paid if the linking is not done before March 31st 2022.
  • While linking, please ensure that the name and Date of Birth (DOB) on Aadhaar match that on your PAN. If there is a mismatch, update the name or DOB on Aadhaar. To know how to update Aadhaar, visit the UIDAI website.
  • Mutual fund purchases and redemption orders may also be rejected by the Asset Management Company (AMC).

There are two ways to link:

Method 1

Online from the Income-tax portal. Go to Link Aadhaar and enter the required details. Enter the OTP sent to the registered mobile number and validate.

To check if Aadhaar is linked, follow the same steps.

Method 2
Send an SMS to 567678 or 56161 from the registered mobile number to link or check the status. The SMS format is, UIDPAN <space> <12 digit Aadhaar> <space> <10 digit PAN>
