Share This

If you are a taxpayer in India, this is important to know that the deadline to link Aadhaar with PAN is August 31, Thursday.

UIDAI CEO Ajay Bhushan Pandey said the Supreme Court verdict on privacy has no bearing on such requirement and so there is no objection on linking Aadhaar with PAN.

He added, “Linking of PAN to Aadhaar is mandated by an amendment in income tax act.. the linking will continue under that act and law. There is no change.”

Aadhaar is currently needed for several important services like opening bank account, getting subsidized cooking gas and obtaining a new phone number.
