Aadhaar and PAN are two important documents for Indian citizens. Aadhaar is a 12-digit unique identification number issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), while PAN is a 10-digit alphanumeric code issued by the Income Tax Department. Both Aadhaar and PAN serve as identity proofs and are required for various purposes such as opening bank accounts, filing income tax returns, applying for loans, etc.

The government has made it mandatory for taxpayers to link their Aadhaar with their PAN cards. But how can you check whether your Aadhaar and PAN cards are already linked? There are two ways to check the Aadhaar PAN card link status online, which are as follows.
