Yes, as per the latest update, you can link your Aadhaar with PAN through just an SMS only. In this article I am going to share the details about this process with the previous process also.

Well, if you are thinking whether it is mandatory to do so or why one should link aadhaar with PAN then let me tell you that Govt is trying to stop all the fake PAN issues and trying to track people’s transactions & income in various ways and this is one of them.
