The Indian government has extended the PAN-Aadhaar linking deadline to September 30, 2021, from the the previous deadline of June 30, 2021. Prior to this, the government has already extended the deadline thrice. The first deadline was March 31, 2020, which was extended to June 30, 2020, and then to March 31, 2021. The last time, the PAN-Aadhaar linking deadline was extended to June 30, 2021. However, the new deadline is September 30, 2021.
Meanwhile, if you think that your PAN might be linked with your Aadhaar already, you can check this direct link to know the status.
Permanent Account Number (PAN) is a ten-digit unique alphanumeric number issued by the Income Tax Department. The laminated plastic card popularly known as PAN card is an important financial document.
Government has made access to several important documents available from the comfort of people’s homes in the wake of COVID-19. If you have not yet linked your Aadhaar card with PAN, you can follow the process online.
Keep a note that in order to link PAN and Aadhaar cards, tax payers have to first register on the Income tax e-Filing portal (the process will be now done in the new income Tax filing portal).
