In this paper, we investigate the eigenvalues of the drifting Laplacian on the bounded domain in Hardamard manifolds. By using upper half-plane model, we establish a universal inequality for the drifting Laplacian with a specific class of potential functions on the hyperbolic space, which can be viewed as a rigidity result associated with such a class of functions. Furthermore, we consider general Hardamard manifolds with pinching condition of sectional curvature, and obtain an eigenvalue inequality without the condition of Bakry-Émery curvature. As a by-product, we obtain a universal bound for the case of radial drifting Laplacian satisfying certain growth condition along with the radial direction.
