The notification also said that the Aadhaar numbers must be submitted to the Principal Director General of Income Tax (Systems) or the Director General of Income Tax (Systems). However, going by reports, your PAN card will become invalid if you don't link it to your Aadhaar, but at a later date which has not yet been announced by the government.
With the "deadline" for linking Aadhaar and PAN card expiring on June 30, taxpayers who missed linking the two documents are confused about what will happen now.
Users faced difficulties logging on to the websites to update their details, particularly if there was a mismatch between the details on the PAN card and Aadhaar card. Or if you have Aadhaar card but no Pan Card then for the FY 2016-17 people can do e-file tax returns. There you need to click on the button that links your PAN card with Aadhaar card. The move to make Aadhaar mandatory has come under severe criticism though, and the Supreme Court is yet to give its order on the same. Many think if they don't link their Aadhaar with their PAN before July 1, their PAN will become invalid.
A senior official from the tax department who was quoted by PTI clarified that the date for invalidation of PAN cards has not been confirmed yet. Select "link Aadhaar". Add your personal details, matching it with details on your Aadhaar card.
One more day to go and connecting Aadhaar number with a lasting record number (PAN) will be obligatory.
From today, linking Aadhaar Number with the Permanent Account Number (PAN) will be mandatory.
The I-T department has made it clear that taxpayers without Aadhaar number or its enrolment ID will not be able to e-file their income tax return (ITR) f even as it has said that in "no case" any PAN will be invalidated.
The government quoted that Aadhaar ID is a must at the time of application of PAN. Moreover, those filing ITRs (Income-tax returns) and who haven't linked their PAN with their Aadhar could still choose to mention their Aadhar number while filing. "Provided that in case of failure to intimate the Aadhaar number, the permanent account number allotted to the person shall be deemed to be invalid and the other provisions of this Act shall apply, as if the person had not applied for allotment of permanent account number", reads the section (2) of Section 139 AA of I-T Act.
