In Aadhaar, if the resident provides documentary evidence of Date of Birth, then the Date of Birth is considered as “Verified”. Date of birth is considered as “Declared”, when resident declares the DOB without any documentary evidence.

My date of birth in PAN and Aadhaar do not match. Not able to link them. Please help?

You have to correct your date of birth, either in Aadhaar or with PAN to link both. We request you to please get in touch with Income Tax department In-case of linking problem still persists.

My name is different in PAN and Aadhaar. It is not allowing me to link both. What to do?
Ideally your demographic details (i.e. Name, Gender and Date of Birth) should match in both the documents in order to Link Aadhaar with PAN.
When compared to the actual data in Aadhaar in case of any minor mismatch in Aadhaar Name provided by taxpayer. One Time Password (Aadhaar OTP) will be sent to the registered mobile number with Aadhaar. The date of birth and gender in PAN and Aadhaar should be ensured by taxpayers are exactly same.
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.
