PAN-Aadhaar linking deadline EXTENDED: The last date to link PAN and Aadhaar has been extended yet again. The Central Board of Direct Taxes on Monday extended the date for linking of PAN with Aadhaar till March 31, 2020. Earlier, the last date was December 31. In a notification, the CBDT said: “The due date for linking of PAN with Aadhaar as specified under sub-section 2 of Section 139AA of the Income-tax Act,1961 has been extended from 31st December 2019 to 31st March 2020. Notification no.107 of 2019 dated 30/12/2019 issued by CBDT.”

If you hold the PAN card and have also got the Aadhaar number, the two must be linked. It is compulsory to link PAN with Aadhaar by March 31, 2020. In not doing so, your PAN will become inoperative which means quoting PAN during specified transactions will not be allowed. If not allowed, you may not be able to complete any of the 18 specified transactions where PAN is mandatory.
