Linking of ADHAAR with PAN has been made easy being mandatory to link before 30.06.17

The Income Tax Department has made it mandatory to link Adhaar with PAN before 30.06.2017 and to complete the process before due date they have made it easy for taxpayers to link their PAN with Aadhaar.
There was difficulty faced by the Tax payers as in many their names did not match in both systems, the mismatch of names as per PAN and Adhaar was the main problem and  eesponding to such grievances,the Dept has come out with a simple solution now.
Simple Steps to Link Adhaar with PAN:
Just go to 
Click on the link on the left pane -> Link Aadhaar.
Provide PAN
 Aadhaar no
(avoid spelling mistakes) and submit.
After verification from UIDAI, the linking will be confirmed.
For Mismatch reporting:
In case of any minor mismatch in Aadhaar name provided
Aadhaar OTP will be required.
Please ensure that the date of birth and gender in PAN and Aadhaar are exactly same.
There is no need to login or be registered on E-filing website. This facility can be used by anyone to link their Aadhaar with PAN.
In a rare case where Aadhaar name is completely different from name in PAN, then the linking will fail and taxpayer will be prompted to change the name in either Aadhaar or in PAN database.
Linking Adhaar with PAN is required to do :
1)     It is mandatory to link otherwise PAN will be deactivated.
2)     It is useful for E-Verification of Income Tax returns using Aadhaar OTP
3)     Once E Verification is done there is no Need to Send ITR –V to CPC
