The SMS facility is only for those whose names are identical on Aadhaar and PAN cards. The I-T Department earlier this month launched an online facility to link Aadhaar number with PAN, a mandatory procedure for filing I-T returns now.

“After verification from the UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India), the linking will be confirmed. In case of any minor mismatch in Aadhaar name provided, Aadhaar OTP (one-time password) will be required,” the I-T Department said in a note to taxpayers.

The government also made Aadhaar mandatory for applying for PAN starting July 1, 2017. While Aadhaar is issued by the UIDAI to Indian residents, the 10-digit alphanumeric PAN is issued to individuals and companies.
