It appears that once again the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has extended the last date to link Permanent Account Number (PAN) with Aadhaar to June 30, 2023. 

Last Date To Link PAN Card With Aadhaar Extended, Again! Check The New Deadline

Extending The Date Of Linking PAN With Aadhaar 

In this regard, CBDT said, “In order to provide some more time to the taxpayers, the date for linking PAN and Aadhaar has been extended to 30th June 2023, whereby persons can intimate their Aadhaar to the prescribed authority for Aadhaar-PAN linking without facing repercussions,” during a press release released on March 28, 2023.

With this announcement, CBDT has extended the deadline to link PAN with Aadhaar for the fifth time on Tuesday.

CBDT further added, “Notification to this effect is being issued separately,”.

It said, “Under the provisions of the Income-tax Act, 1961(the ‘Act’) every person who has been allotted a PAN as of 1st July 2017 and is eligible to obtain an Aadhaar Number, is required to intimate his Aadhaar to the prescribed authority on or before 31st March 2023, on payment of a prescribed fee,”. 

What happens if you fail to link your Aadhaar with your PAN?

It is noteworthy here that the failure to do so shall attract certain repercussions under the Act w.e.f. 1st April 2023. 

Further, CBDT said, “The date for intimating Aadhaar to the prescribed authority for the purpose of linking PAN and Aadhaar has now been extended to 30th June 2023,”.

“From 1st July 2023, the PAN of taxpayers who have failed to intimate their Aadhaar, as required, shall become inoperative,” CBDT said.

If you are wondering about the consequences during the period that PAN remains inoperative, here it is.

  1. No refund will be made against such PANs
  2. Interest will not be payable on such refund for the period during which PAN remains inoperative
  3. TDS and TCS shall be deducted /collected at the higher rate, as provided in the Income-tax Act, 1961. 

Please note here that if your PAN becomes inoperative, individuals need to pay a nominal penalty of Rs 1,000 to link it with Aadhaar. 

CBDT said, “The PAN can be made operative again in 30 days, upon intimation of Aadhaar to the prescribed authority after payment of fee of Rs 1,000,”. 

To Whom It May Concern?

Notably, Aadhaar-PAN linking is not applicable to these four categories.

  1. Residents of the states of Assam, Jammu and Kashmir, and Meghalaya.
  2. Non-resident Indians (NRIs) as per the Income-tax Act, 1961.
  3. Anyone who was of the age 80 years or more at any time during the previous year.
  4. Individuals who are not citizens of India. 

So, individuals who fall in any of the above categories, do not have to link their PAN with their Aadhaar by the deadline. 

But, if they are willing, they can voluntarily link the two documents. 

So far, over 51 crore PANs have already been linked with Aadhaar to date, according to CBDT.
