Income-tax Dept. has launched a new functionality on the e-filing portal which allots a PAN to the assessee on basis of his Aadhaar Number. This facility can be used by an assessee only if the following conditions are fulfilled:

  • He has never been allotted a PAN;
  • His mobile number is linked with his Aadhaar number;
  • His complete date of birth is available on the Aadhaar card; and
  • He should not be a minor on the date of application for PAN
