PAN card will have Aadhaar number

UIDAI Chairman Nandan Nilekani held several rounds of talks with the Income Tax officials to rollout PAN card with unique digit number. “The IT department has in principle agreed for UID-based PAN cards”, Nilekani said, adding that “details are still being worked out”.

With this development, the Income Tax department, which had earlier planned to issue bio-metric PAN card, has put on hold its plan to avoid duplication.

As the Aadhaar, earlier known as Unique Identification Number, will be issued after collection of prints of all ten fingers, iris and face, the government doesn’t want the duplication by doing the same at the IT department, sources in the government said.
