Aadhaar card is one of the most important documents that is used to prove your identity and get official work done. But what if there is some mistake in your Aadhaar card? It is very important that all the details and information mentioned on Aadhaar should be correct. It can be known that an Aadhaar card comprises the Aadhaar number which is a 12-digit random number issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) to the residents of India after satisfying the verification process laid down by the Authority.

Aadhaar card is such an important document that the central government has made it mandatory to link it with PAN card too, which is required to file income tax returns. However while you do that, you need to note that the details on both the documents should be correct and should be the same, that is they should match. Any mismatch will get rejected.

However, there are instances where you will notice spelling mistakes in your name, mistakes in your address, date of birth, etc. in your Aadhaar card. Any of these mistakes can lead to problems while linking Aadhar and PAN. However, what is more important is that you can get these mistakes rectified.

Aadhaar card mistake to avoid:

According to the official website of UIDAI, a person is allowed to change their name on the Aadhar card only twice. The gender and date of birth of the Aadhaar holder can be changed only once. You also need to note that the date of birth can only be updated if your previous date of birth was unverified with the UIDAI. So, the Aadhaar card mistake to be avoided at all cost is not to provide the wrong details while doing your Aadhaar card update. Once you run out of the number of times changes are allowed, you will be in trouble.
