Have you linked your PAN card with the Aadhaar card number? If not, then you'll be required to pay Rs. 500 to do so. However, simply as joke, Twitter user has shared a new way to do so and that too without paying a single penny. The viral post shows a hilarious 'new' way where the user kept his Aadhaar in an actual frying pan and stuck it with adhesive tape. Sharing the picture, the user, Atharva Gupte, tweeted, “Finally linked Aadhar to my PAN.” The post has sparked a meme fest on Twitter as netizens couldn't stop themselves from commenting on the post.

But on a serious note, if you have not linked your PAN card to an Aadhaar card yet, you will miss out on several benefits. You won't be able to invest in mutual funds, stocks, open a bank account, etc. where furnishing a PAN card is a must.
