as an oci (overseas citizen of india) i am allowed to do most things but one of the things off-limits for me was an aadhar card. now i hear the govt. is trying to connect the aadhar card with a pan card. (this latter i have and is useful (necessary?) when making income tax payments.)

the query is - how will i pay my taxes (believe me i don't want to but there seems to be no way around it) if i am not allowed to apply/own an aadhar card?

I cannot make sense of your question.

Yes, GoI is seeking to link the Aadhar cards and PAN cards of individuals who have both. Yes, OCIs are currently not issued Aadhar cards.

So how did you make the logical leap from the above to claiming that Aadhar cards will be required to make income tax payments?

Not necessarily off limits.

The requirement for an aardhar card is being resident in India, regardless of citizenship of visa/PIO/OCI type.

But if you don't live here, along with countless others who owe tax to India but do not live here ? This is one of the things in the aarhar-for-everything race that they are yet to think through.

Soon it will be necessary to have an aardhar card to get an aardhar card.

GoI sets a new trap

Mobile Users, New And Old, Will Soon Require Aadhaar For Verification
If you liked Demonetization you'll love this one! Imagine the queues!

Quote:
Members of the Cellular Operators Association of India may meet later this week to discuss the modalities or rolling out the verification process for over a billion users, which - they say - is expected to cost them nearly Rs. 1,000 crore.
And what about visitors who aren't entitled to an Ādhār card?

I saw this a few days ago and passed on in stunned disbelief.

Easiest thing would besomething like SMSing the number. But how would it be verified? Of course, the companies would have to have access to the Aardhar database. That's ok: I don't expect it to stay private for long.

But, a few years ago, we all had to go to our telecom-company's showrooms and verify our ID and address details. I don't recall that being an enormous pain in the backside.

In Britain, there was almost a revolution when a national identity card was even proposed. Politicians loved the idea, and it progressed quite far, but was, eventually, shelved.

Right. The qualification for Aadhaar is residence.

I may add that this is certainly the case for OCI/PIO/X visa holders. Not sure if someone who's here on a 1- or 2-year employment contract is eligible.

The different flavours of residence! We have residence for immigration purposes, residence for tax purposes, residence for land ownership... residence for aardhar? There is probably, possibly, might be a definition somewhere. I don't know. But I know I've got one

Well, yours is/was an open-and-shut case, innit? You're a permanent resident (yes, yes, I know we don't have anything called PR), based on marriage. It's the 1-2 year employment cases that interest me. Or long-time foreign journalists - there are some that have been based here for 20, even 30 years.

On another note, Nepali citizens resident here are eligible for Aadhaar. And most of them can't even prove entry and exit to start with, on account of there being no requirement to. I'm not even sure they have to provide any kind of ID at Indian land border points, even though many of them have their national ID cards.

Yep. But still, there should be tangible criteria. Have to admit laziness: I haven't looked. Maybe there are.

As per amendments in finance bill, Aadhar will be essential to file IT returns on or after 1st July 2017. That pretty much means that Aadhar number will be required to make IT payments.

And there is no linking in my view, aadhar it is mandatory to be used and we may soon see PAN becoming redundant.
If you find my posts confrontationist, please bear, I am an old frustrated guy who has nothing better to do than sit on rocking chair and curse the world whole day

You do not need to be a resident, or citizen of India, to pay taxes in India; for which PAN is a requirement. Many foreign non resident, small business owners have indeed a PAN card

Yes, I was only commenting on what I know, not what the government does not know I think they will come up with something soon once someone points it out.

I thought anar was resident in Kerala. If you are resident you should not have any problem geeting the card.
Lord, Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people I had to kill because they pissed me off.

Any resident of India is eligible for Aadhaar.
