PAN Verification – Aadhaar Verification
Aadhaar Card and PAN Card, both are regulated and issued by the Government of India. Aadhaar Card is issued by Uidai, a government authority whereas Pan Card is issued by NSDL and UTI for and behalf of Income-tax Department of Govt. of India. Government of India is trying to make the Aadhaar Compulsory or valuable document for verification and therefore, various data base of different governments are being linked with Aadhaar data base. In this process, PAN data and PAN verification has also been made with Aadhaar verification.
There are total two actions of Income-tax Department, where Aadhaar verification is made with PAN verification. First, aadhaar verification is made when any person makes application for New Pan Card, Correction Pan Card and Reprint Pan Card using the Aadhaar Card as Identity Proof for Name, address and Date Of Birth. Here, if aadhaar verification fails with required Pan Data, then the Aadhaar Card will not be accepted as valid I.D. Proof. Sometimes, due to delay in updation of Aadhaar database, aadhaar verification fails. Therefore, while making the application for Pan Card, data in Pan Application should match hundred percent with Aadhaar Card and Aadhaar Data base.
Secondly, aadhaar verification is made when any income-tax assessee (ITR Filer) wants to upload his return of income online directly without using DSC (Digital Signature Certificate). Benefit of Pan Verification with Aadhaar Verification has been recently given to all ITR filers who has returned income above Rs. 5.00 Lacs or claims refund. Such assessees / ITR Filers can now, file the online ITR directly after aadhaar verification and without using DSC. If aadhaar verification is made with PAN verification successfully, assessee will directly get acknowledgement of Income Tax Return and he will not have to send ITR-V to CPC, Bengaluru. Therefore, all the pan card holders should make PAN verification with aadhaar verification well in advance to take this benefit. If verification fails, such assessee should get corrected his Aadhaar or Pan Card to match both the documents with each other 100%.
