SBI took to Twitter to share the information where the bank officials directed their customers to link their PAN card with the Aadhaar number to avoid any inconvenience and continue enjoying seamless banking services. A graphic message was also put up along with the message which basically conveyed why linking PAN with Aadhaar is mandatory.

The bank officials further gave the website link www.incometaxindiaefilling.gov.in, so that customers can easily link both the documents without any hassle.
To link them, customers need to first click on the link and the account holders will have to click on the left pane, ‘Link Aadhaar’ and complete the details.
