Making PAN as a single card for availing benefits and capturing data of all citizens will be a step forward for ease of business and ease of living.


Aadhar update should be made email based along with mobile

It should provide for retaining the existing PAN No. while at the same time, rectifying details of the PAN card as per the Aadhaar card.

Sir, I have tried to get PAN card for my wife some 3 months back, linking Aadhar. But the Aadhaar was not linked with and rejected by IT. I lost payment made for 3 times using Aadhar card. I am a senior citizen and find difficult it getting the same.

My son wanted to open a PPF A/c in the bank. His Aadhaar was not linked to his mobile or to his email. He has been filling his Income Tax Returns for the past 5 years or more & his PAN & Aahaar are linked to his Bank Accounts & also his IT Return is filed every year with Aadhaar & bank Account details. He went to a Aadhaar Center & showed proof of his Date of Birth as mentioned in his PAN & filled up a Form. In 2 weeks his upgraded Aadhaar reflected his DOB, Mobile Number & he opened PPF Account online in a bank. He has since downloaded the latest Aadhar. If possible, I advise you to go to an Aadhaar Center.

You could have visited an Aadhaar Center & got things done for Rs 50 only. My son''s Aadhaar was missing DOP & Mobile number. He went to an Aadhaar center with his PAN & DOB & Mobile Number were incorporated in his Aadhaar within 2 weeks. Fee Rs 50/-.


How many citizens are being cheated of large amounts for getting PAN ? Modi Govt comes out every now n then with constructive ideas to help the masses n it works ! No commission or greasing required !Thank you Govt. This facility of getting PAN on internet is beautiful !
