In its decision, the Supreme Court upheld Aadhaar’s statutory legitimacy. Nevertheless, for filing income tax return (ITR), or even for applying for the new PAN card, the PAN should be connected to Aadhaar. In the case of orthographic errors and other errors, you may not be able to link the two with your Aadhaar card details. You may need to update the details of your Aadhaar Card for certain reasons.

UIDAI’s Aadhaar Card contains vital information of individuals such as name, address, telephone number, gender and date of birth. This contains an iris and a fingerprint (biometric data) scan of the user.
