SBI customers alert! How to check PAN-Aadhaar link status online?
On the new portal, you may check the status of your PAN-Aadhaar link. You just have to click on “Link Aadhaar Status” and input your PAN and Aadhaar number to see whether the documents have been linked successfully. You can also check your status through SMS. Enter your 12-digit Aadhaar number, leave a space, and then type your 10-digit PAN number. Then, from your registered cellphone number, send the message to 567678 or 56161. The response will be sent as a message.
The linking of the Aadhaar and PAN cards is required since it allows the government to keep track of taxable financial activities and identify them. It assists in the prevention of tax evasion. Additionally, combining the Aadhaar and PAN cards prevents an individual from having numerous PAN cards in order to avoid paying taxes. The government and financial system have joined forces to integrate Aadhaar and PAN numbers in order to make financial services and tax payments more efficient.
