Aadhaar-PAN link failed due to Name, DOB, Gender mismatch? Income Tax Dept shares ways to correct

How to resolve Aadhaar-PAN link failure due to Name, DOB, Gender mismatch? The Income Tax Department has shared ways to resolve PAN-Aadhaar link failure due to demographic mismatch.


The last date to link Aadhaar and PAN is June 30. PAN holders, who have still not completed the linking process, can do so till June 30 by paying a fee of Rs 1000. Failing to link Aadhaar-PAN by the end of the current month would make such Permanent Account Numbers (PAN) invalid from July 1, 2023.



Several users have been complaining that they are unable to link PAN-Aadhaar due to demographic mismatches such as name, date of birth, gender etc in their PAN and Aadhaar cards. The Income Tax Department on Saturday (June 24) shared what such PAN holders can do.





In case of demographic mismatch, the Income Tax Department said biometric-based authentication can be availed of at dedicated centres of PAN Service Providers (Protean & UTIITSL).

As per Income Tax Department, the link failure may occur due to:

  • Name Mismatch
  • Date of Birth Mismatch
  • Gender Mismatch.
