Simplify PAN card name or sustitut by AADHAAR

This petition had 19 supporters

The names of people of India are in various forms and formats, as various as their religions , castes, languages and dialects and regions. Some have family names , some initials only and some surnames of varied hues. Over the years we have been using School / college Certificates for DOB proof . We have used Passports , Voter cards and a  host of other government documents for name and address proof ,  with mistakes in spelling and other minor errors without  any issues.

When  Aadhaar came, many  many people preferred short names with initials and UIDAI did not have any issues is accepting short names with initials based in earlier IDs of long names. Then bang came the linkage of PAN (of mandatory long first , middle and last names in the database )  with Aadhaar of chosen short names in  a lot of cases. And further bang , the linkage is denied ONLY for this reason, even though the photo, DOB and other details match , forcing us to go through correction process of either document. Please spare us and make AADHAAR AS A SUBSTITUTE OF PAN TOO . Or make the comparison a rational one and link if the initials match the expanded name and photos  match.
