Link Aadhar with PAN before 31-03 2021

Linking of Aadhar and PAN has been made mandatory by the Income Tax Department and so all individuals holding Aadhar card and PAN are required to link them immediately.

Earlier the deadline to link Aadhar and PAN was 30-06-2020. However, in the wake of the Corona Virus pandemic in the country and to give relief to its citizens, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has announced the extension of Aadhar-PAN linking deadline to 31-03-2021.

  • What happens if Aadhar and PAN are not linked?
It may be mentioned that as per current Income Tax laws not linking the two will make the PAN "inoperative". The term "inoperative PAN" (CBDT notification, 13-02-2020) means that an individual does not possess a PAN and he or she will not be able to do financial transactions where quoting of PAN is necessary or mandatorily required. Further not linking Aadhar and PAN may attract penalty or fine of Rs. 10,000/- under the Income Tax Act, 1961.

  • How to revive or make PAN operational again?
The CBDT in the same notification made it clear that once an inoperative PAN is linked with Aadhar it will become operational again and he or she will be able to do all financial transactions further on.

  • How to Link PAN with Aadhar?
Linking of PAN with Aadhar is very easy. It can be done in two ways without going anywhere at the comfort of your home either by sending SMS or through the Income Tax department's e-filing website.

  • Aadhar and PAN linking via SMS
This process is most simple. If you want to link your Aadhar with PAN send an SMS either to 567678 or 56161 in the following format:
UIDPAN(space)(12 digit Aadhar)(space)(10 digit PAN). Example- If your Aadhar number is 123456789123 and PAN is ABCDE1234F, then type UIDPAN 123456789123 ABCDE1234F and send it to 567678 or 56161. Post successful seeding, an acknowledgment SMS will be sent on your mobile number.
