Is your E-Aadhaar Verification failing for Income Tax?

Is your E-Aadhaar Verification failing for Income Tax?

Presently, small taxpayers are enjoying the benefits of E-Aadhaar Verification for the purpose of Income Tax Returns and other personal matters. Aadhaar verification shall become compulsory after 31st July, 2017 for purpose of Income Tax. Now the problem is that in maximum cases PAN Card data (data as per Income Tax Department) does not match Aadhaar Data.

Why does Aadhaar Verification fail in Income Tax:

For Aadhaar Verification in Income Tax two major things that should match are: 1. Full Name 2. Date of Birth. 1% difference in these two items will result in Aadhaar Verification failure. Even difference of space in name is not accepted. Thus even if you have both Aadhaar Card and PAN Card, verification may fail. In Indian State of Rajasthan full date of birth is not printed on many Aadhaar Cards which is also a cause for Aadhaar Verification failure. Also if your mobile number is not registered in Aadhaar or registered mobile number is inactive then also Aadhaar Verification will fail.

Guidelines for successful PAN Card – Aadhaar Verification:

Here are some helpful tips for PAN Card – Aadhaar successful verification:

  1. Firstly confirm whether your mobile number is registered in Aadhaar. If registered ensure that the registered mobile number is active i.e. working.
  2. Secondly confirm if the name as on PAN Card matches exactly with the name as on Aadhaar Card. In case of slightest discrepancy submit your Income Tax Return with the name as on PAN Card.
  3. If Aadhaar Verification fails then you have two options-
  • Make correction in your PAN Card as per Aadhaar Data
  • Make correction in your Aadhaar Data as per PAN Card

But to avoid any controversy or problem in future keep same name in PAN Card and PAN Card database.

Name in Aadhaar – Aadhaar Problem

Name in AadhaarAadhaar Problem

Aadhaar Card is a very good ID proof,  document and data record. Government of India is keenly interested to make the Aadhaar compulsory . But there are many serious Aadhaar Problems  relating to Aadhaar for which Government of India is doing nothing as it appears. Govt / UIDAI may be unaware of these problems. We are just raising all such Aadhaar problems and shortcomings one by one in separate articles. We hope that Government of India  / UIDAI will solve all such Aadhaar Card Problems. In this article, we are raising fourth problem which can be captioned as ‘ Problem of  Name in Aadhaar Card / Aadhaar Database .

Problem of  Name in Aadhaar Card / Aadhaar Database :  While applying for Aadhaar Card and in the Aadhaar Card itself, the name of Aadhaar Card Holder – Resident may be problematic.  Presently, many Aadhaar Holders are facing following problems relating to Name in Aadhaar Card :-

1. In many cases, it has been observed  that name in Aadhaar Card is not matching with the name in PAN Card and Passport which are national level ID proofs. Therefore, Aadhaar fails in pancard / Income-tax Verification or mismatch with other ID proofs.

2. In many cases, it has been observed / clear that Initials in name are accepted and printed in Aadhaar Card whereas Initials are not allowed and accepted for Pan card and Passport. Therefore, Aadhaar fails in pancard / Income-tax Verification or mismatch with other ID proofs.

3. It is surprising that Pancard and Aadhaar Card, both are issued by Government of India but rules, terms and conditions for the Name of applicant / Holder is not same and identical. It is very serious fault due to double and unequal standards.

4. Contrary to Pan Card and Passport Application, there is no classification of First Name, Last / Surname and Middle Name in Aadhaar data  which is also creating the problem if name mismatch.

4. PANCARD Offices are not accepting Aadhaar Card as valid ID proof due to mismatch / initials  in name.

Suggestion For Aadhaar Card Holders 

A. Aadhaar Card Applicants should use only full name for Aadhaar Card. Applicants should insist upon the Aadhaar Center to fill / accept only full name.

B. Aadhaar Card holder should try to correct / update the complete name in Aadhaar Card before using it Name ID for Pancard / Passport.

C. Aadhaar Card holder should beware of the fact that Name and other data on Aadhaar Card should be matching with other ID proofs such as Pancard &Passport. Discrepancy / mismatch will create problem in future.

Suggestion For Aadhaar UIDAI / Govt. Of India

(a) First of all, Indian Govt. should make exact identical policy /norms / rules for name and other contents in Aadhaar Card , PANcard, Passport and Driving License. 

(b) Govt. of India should suo-moto take initiation for correction in name in all such national level ID proofs such as Aadhaar Card , PANcard, Passport and Driving License free of cost to make them identical.
