Documents needed to update/change PAN card details

Documents required to make changes in your PAN card, online, are: 1) A proof of identity such as Aadhaar card/Ration card/Passport, 2) One proof of address, such as DL/Voter's ID card/Passport, and 3) A DoB proof such as Matriculation certificate/Birth Certificate/Aadhaar card/Passport etc.

Interchangeability

Separately, PAN and Aadhaar can now be used interchangeably

The Central government has now made PAN and Aadhaar card interchangeable.

This implies that you can now quote your Aadhaar number instead of PAN to file Income Tax returns.

Further, Aadhaar can also be used for other services where quoting of PAN is necessary, such as buying/selling financial instruments like MF, gold etc.

Note: August 31, 2019 is the last date to file ITR.

Linkage

Notably, your PAN might get deactivated, if not linked soon

Notably, your PAN might get deactivated, if not linked soon

Further, according to reports, the government is planning to temporarily invalidate all PAN cards that are not linked with Aadhaar latest by August 31, 2019.

The thought behind the move is that the government believes that if after so many extensions, your PAN isn't yet linked with Aadhaar, its authenticity is questionable.

Simply put, the government is skeptic that your PAN might be fake.
