Centre has extended the last date for linking PAN-Aadhaar card till March 31, 2021. Earlier, the deadline for completing the formality was June 30, 2020. The extension in PAN-Aadhaar link deadline offers some relief for those PAN cardholders who have not linked their PAN with Aadhaar.

If you don’t complete this formality within the time frame PAN will become ‘inoperative’.

Once the PAN becomes inoperative, the holder will not be able to complete 18 transactions specified by income tax department. You can only complete these transactions after linking the PAN and Aadhaar thus making the PAN re-active.
