Centre Extends Last date for linking of PAN-Aadhaar
The last date for linking PAN and Aadhaar has been extended by the Government to 30 June, 2023, in order to provide some more time to the taxpayers.
Earlier the last date was March 31, 2023.
It must be noted that under the provisions of the Income-tax Act, 1961 (the ‘Act’) every person who has been allotted a PAN as on July 01, 2017 and is eligible to obtain Aadhaar Number, is required to intimate his Aadhaar to the prescribed authority on or before 31 March, 2023, on payment of a prescribed fee.
Failure to do so shall attract certain repercussions under the Act w.e.f. 1st April, 2023.
However, now the date for intimating Aadhaar to the prescribed authority has been extended to 30 June, 2023.
This means that with effect from 01 July, 2023, the PAN of those taxpayers who have failed to intimate their Aadhaar, shall become inoperative.
