    Balasubramanian says it right. Handling these frivolous variations in Aadhar and bank profiles is better solved at your bank level. the big brother called Aadhar is actually a white elephant so far as linking matters are concerned. in a country like india with egoists manning the govt offices speaking no english but only various native languages and with a lot of educated idiocy built in computerisation in such matters is impossible. unfortunately the govt of the day also learn lessons very slowly and very late and after a lot of inconvenience to the honest tax payer, as most of the men manning the so called responsible govt. offices are also only ameteurs and some mavericks including those ITOs in the CBDT AAYAKAR BHAVANS. Bank is the right place for everything as all our money is only there,

  2. S Chockalingam says:

    I have the same problem. I am not able to register my Aadhaar number, as it states that names don’t match. In the Aadhaar card only the first letter of my father’s name is shown ( as initial) whereas in the PAN card my father’s name is shown in full as surname.
    Can anyone suggest a way out to have my Aadhaar number registered ?

  3. CA K S HARIHARAN says:

    AADHAR BASE EVC- IN PAN DATABASE THE NAME IS AS FIRST ,MIDDLE AND LAST NAME.IN AADHAR IT IS NOT IN THE SAME FORMAT. WHEN WE GENERATE AADHAR BASED EVE IT SHOWS THAT NAME IS NOT MATCHING.HOW TO RESOLVE THIS ISSUE.PL.ANYBODY EXPLAIN.

    • S Balasubramanian says:

      Now the proposal is to e file the return through net banking link. While Aadhaar link has problems of exact matching of name between PAN and Aadhaar cards, e filing through net banking website may not present such problems because name and PAN have already been validated by the Bank concerned. Therefore, your problem will be automatically solved, I hope.

  4. VENKAT says:

    I have a doubt. The name in the bank accounts are invariably intiaised name e.g r.abcdef, whereas the name in the income tax return is full name e.g. abcd.dfgrth
    will this give problem in EVC
