Haven't Linked Aadhaar With PAN Yet? Here Are Five Key Things To Know

PAN holders are now required to furnish their Aadhaar number in order to file an income tax return (ITR)


If you haven't linked your Aadhaar number, or the 12-digit identification number issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India, with Permanent Account Number (PAN) yet, you have less than six months to do so The Income Tax Department has set a September 30 "cut-off date" for linking the Aadhaar number with PAN "unless specifically exempted", according to a statement by the taxman. This means PAN holders will be required to furnish their Aadhaar number in order to file an income tax return (ITR).

Here are five things to know about how to seed the Aadhaar number into the PAN:

1. From April 1, 2019, it is mandatory to quote and link the Aadhaar number in order to file an income tax return, according to the Income Tax Department.

2. “There were reports in media that PANs which are not linked with Aadhaar by 31.03.2019 may be invalidated. Now, the cut-off date for intimating Aadhaar no and linking PAN with Aadhaar is 30.09.2019, unless specifically exempted,” the Income Tax Department said on Twitter last month.
