Linking your PAN Aadhaar has become mandatory for all individuals. The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has extended the deadline for this process from March 31st, 2023, to June 30, 2023. Failing to complete this linking within the specified timeframe may result in various consequences.

Moreover, if the PAN of the holder is not linked with Aadhaar, it becomes inoperative. Therefore, it is crucial to ensure that your PAN is linked with your Aadhaar. You can verify the status of this linking process on the Income Tax e-Filing website. Keeping track of the status allows you to ensure compliance with this requirement and avoid any potential issues that may arise from non-compliance.

Latest Update

The deadline for linking Aadhaar PAN is set for June 30, 2023. If individuals fail to complete this linking process by the specified date, their PAN will become inoperative. However, if they wish to link their PAN with Aadhaar after June 30, 2023, they will be subject to paying certain penalties.
