How to rectify different names on your Aadhaar and PAN card?

The Aadhaar is considered one of the most important documents to prove the identity of an Indian citizen. Issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), the Aadhaar has a 12 digit unique number for identification. This document also contains the individual's personal information like name, address, and date of birth as well as her/his biometric details.

The identity of the individual is proved by doing Aadhaar based eKYC. Aadhaar eKYC is done through Aadhaar authentication. In this process, the individual's biometric information and personal details get submitted to the UIDAI. The UIDAI verifies these details with the information stored on their Aadhaar database and responds with a 'yes'/'no'.

Aadhaar And PAN – Your Two Important Documents 

Today the Aadhaar is necessary to avail of several services and benefits including opening bank/loan accounts, filing for tax returns, buying a property in India, taking a mobile phone connection, and availing subsidies and benefits from the government. Hence, it’s important to update your Aadhaar card whenever there has been a change in the details furnished or an error.

The Permanent Account Number commonly referred to as the PAN is valid for a lifetime. The PAN is a unique 10 digit number for identification and its necessary for all financial transactions. The Income-tax department uses this number to keep track of all financial transactions carried out by an Indian resident or an Indian citizen.
