Given below is a list of components that are captured in the Aadhar card.
- Date of Birth
- E-mail id
- Mobile number
- Finger print

Get PAN with your Aadhaar card
PAN or Personal Account Number is a ten digit unique alphanumeric number issued in the form of a laminated card. Applying for a PAN card can be quite tedious as the process consists of several formalities. The Income Tax Department has collaborated with Unique Identification Authority of India to make applying for PAN a much easier process.
In a recent announcement made by the Income Tax Department, it was stated that the department is trying to cut down on the formalities involved in applying for a PAN card.
In order to do that, the Income Tax Department has now announced that Aadhar card will be accepted as a valid proof for
- Date of Birth
- Proof of Identity and also
- Address Proof
Aadhar card will suffice for these categories that require document proof.
Before, both Voter ID and Aadhar card were accepted as proof of identity and address until now. Now Aadhaar card alone will suffice as proof if the plan by Income Tax Department materialises.
