pan_aadhaarThe Centre on Sunday extended the deadline for linking PAN card and Aadhaar from March 31 to September 30, 2019.

However, it is still compulsory to quote and link Aadhaar number while filing the return of income from April 1, 2019, unless specifically exempted.

Reportedly, an extension in date has been considered by the Centre and now a cut-off date for updating the Aadhaar number and linking PAN is 30.09.2019 unless any special exemption is issued.

To link your Aadhaar with PAN card, follow the steps mentioned below:

Via SMS facility:

Send SMS to 567678 or 56161 in the following format:

UIDPAN<SPACE><12 digit Aadhaar><Space><10 digit PAN>

Online Procedure:

Users who have an account with the Income Tax Department’s e-filing portal, can simply log in at the portal www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in. Go to the profile settings’ section and an option of linking the Aadhaar with PAN would be visible. Users will have to fill up the details and click on submit.

After filling up the details, users will be asked to verify the credentials and then they will receive a message that reads that the status of your request will be sent to your registered mobile number and e-mail ID.
