Be careful to provide your Name exactly as mentioned in Aadhaar Card.

After  verification  from UIDAI, the linking of PAN and Aadhaar will be confirmed. If the Name mentioned in Aadhaar is completely  different  from  name  in  PAN,  then  the  linking  will  fail
and you will  be prompted to change the name in either Aadhaar or in PAN database.

Please ensure that the date of birth and gender mentioned in PAN and Aadhaar are exactly same.

This facility is also available after login on the e-filing website. 

1. Go to Profile settings.
2. Choose Aadhaar linking. The details as per PAN will be pre-populated.
