PAN-Aadhaar linking Deadline is 31 March, Complete these Important money tasks by March end

PAN-Aadhaar Link: The window for linking PAN cards with Aadhaar cards has been frequently extended over the past few months by the income tax department. According to the income tax authorities, PAN card holders will be left with an invalid PAN if they don't link their PAN card with their Aadhaar card by March 31, 2023. 

What is the Fine for Not Linking PAN Card with Aadhaar Card?

A charge of Rs 500 has to be paid if the notification was issued between April 1 and June 30, 2022. The I-T department then declared that there will be a Rs 1,000 fine for linking Aadhaar and PAN. As a result, you still have time to link your Aadhaar and PAN cards before a Rs. 1,000 fee renders your PAN useless. 

Why it is important to connect PAN with Aadhaar?

The PAN-Aadhaar connection is essentially the process of doing so since the government has mandated that your Permanent Account Number (PAN) and Aadhaar number be linked.

  • Pending returns will not be cleared-
