  • Signature mismatch in PAN Card and Aadhar Card

    Worried about the mismatch of signatures in your PAN Card and Aadhar Card? Quickly know whether or not this could create an issue with applications to study abroad and with financial transactions and how to fix it.

    I am a 22-year-old who has completed graduation and am planning to study abroad. While applying for my passport, I happened to be in a dilemma regarding the signature mismatch in my Aadhar and PAN cards. The signature that I've given in Aadhar in my earlier schooling is different from that I've given in my recent PAN card. Will both the signatures be valid for future processings/financial transactions/passport applications? Can both the signatures be different or should they be the same?

  • A person's signature should be unique and it should be the same on all documents. You can't have different signatures on different documents. When you have to link your Aadhaar and Pan, if the signatures are not tallying some officers may object and you will get into the problem.
    So I suggest you change the signature on your PAn card and keep the same as that of the Aadhaar card. Changing the signature on PAN can be done online or offline. It requires specific forms, documents and charges. You can do the same online by following the following steps.
    Step 1:
    Visit the NSDL official website (
    Select the option of "Changes or Correction in existing PAN Data' from the Application Type. Fill in the application with asked for details.
    Step 2:
    Complete KYC. The site will guide you on how to complete this. See the various options and select which will suit you.
    Step 3.
    Select 'Signature Mismatch'.
    Provide details of your parents.
    Provide your complete address.
    For digital submission of the form and documents select 'Yes'.
    Upload the documents and signature.
    Submit the application.
    Step 4: Make the payment as mentioned on the site and wait for the PAN card to be delivered.

    Once you receive the new PAN Card you will not have the problem of signature mismatch.

    Alternatively, you can change your signature on the Aadhar card also. You can visit your nearest Aadhar centre and the person there will guide you.

However you have to ensure that other details especially the name with spelling and spacing, and the address match with other documents .

    PAN card bears name and address, photo and signature. So the PAN details have more parameters and you may ensure that they are correct and update. If they are all correct and there is some difference in Aadhaar card,then it is relatively easier to rectify in Aadhaar card. After correction you may also ensure that both are linked too.
