As per the directions of the Income Tax Department, details like Name, Date of Birth and Gender as per PAN will be validated against Aadhaar Database. If any of these do not match, ‘Identity data Mismatch’ error appears and the linking would not be done.
You need to update the details in either of the documents. For further information, please get in touch with Income Tax Department website (https://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in/)

There are chances that data on your Pan card may not match with Aadhar card. Details like name, date of birth and gender as per PAN will be validated against your Aadhar details. If any of these do not match, ‘Identity data Mismatch’ error appears and the linking would not be done. In that case, you need to update these details in either Pan card or Aadhaar card.
