Deadline to link PAN with Aadhaar is extended to September 30 by Govt.


The government on Sunday extended the deadline for linking PAN with Aadhaar to September 30, as per an official statement.

This is the sixth time the government has extended the deadline for individuals to link their Permanent Account Number (PAN) with Aadhaar.

In June last year, the government had said that PAN has to be linked with the biometric ID by March 31.

“....now the cut-off date for intimating the Aadhaar number and linking PAN with Aadhaar is September 30, 2019, unless specifically exempted,” the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) said in a statement.

Quoting of Aadhaar will be mandatory while filing income tax returns (ITRs) with effect from April 1, 2019. The CBDT said there were reports that those PANs which are not linked with Aadhaar number by March 31 may be invalidated, following which the matter was considered by the government and the date extended till September 30.
