PAN–Aadhaar Linking To Be Done By 31st March, Can Be Done Offline: See How

Link PAN with Aadhaar: Says Income Tax Department

The Income Tax (IT) Department of India, today, asked all the Permanent Account Number (PAN) holders to link their 10 digit alphanumeric number with their Aadhaar card before the 1st of April 2020.

Entities who are uncomfortable doing it online, can do it in person as well by going to the PAN Service Centres of NSDL (National Securities Depository Limited) and UTITSL (UTI Infrastructure Technology And Services Limited).

All the PAN card holders that are not linked to the Aadhaar by 31st March 2020 will be declared as “inoperative”.

The IT Department, today, tweeted saying, “It is mandatory to link your PAN and Aadhaar before 31st March, 2020. You can do it through Biometric Aadhaar authentication & also by visiting the PAN service centers of NSDL and UTITSL”.

The tweet had a video attached with the message which said that such a linking is for a “beneficial tomorrow”.

The video said that there are 2 ways one can complete this task:

  • Send an SMS to 567678 or 56161 in the format: UIDPAN <Space> 12Digit Aadhaar <Space> 10 Digit PAN

The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT), which frames the policies for the IT Department extended the deadline for the linking of PAN with Aadhaar for the 8th time last year on the 30th December.

In September 2019, the Supreme Court of India declared that the Centre’s flagship Aadhaar scheme as Constitutionally valid and also held that the biometric ID will continue to be mandatory for the filing of tax returns and allotment of PANs.

The Section 139 AA (2) of the Income Tax Act 1961 says that every person who has PAN as on the 1st July 2017 and is eligible to obtain Aadhaar must share the Aadhaar number with the tax authorities.
