Adhaar card is a valid national document which is expected to become compulsory in each and every government process in the coming years. Recently, Government announced that Adhaar is mandatory to file IT returns and PAN card making as according to Finance Bill 2017. From 1 July 2017, you have to link Adhaar card to the PAN card.
