Govt extends PAN-Aadhaar linking deadline extended to Sept 30
New Delhi: The Government on Sunday announced that the deadline for the linking of PAN with Aadhaar has been extended to September 30, 2019.
However, it is mandatory to quote and link the Aadhaar number while filing the return of income w.e.f. April 1, 2019.
“It has been reported in some sections of the media that those PANs which are not linked with Aadhaar number by March 31, 2019, may be invalidated,” the government said in a statement. “The matter has been considered by the Central government and now the cut-off date for intimating the Aadhaar number and linking PAN with Aadhaar is September 30, 2019, unless specifically exempted.”
“Notwithstanding the last date of intimating/linking of Aadhaar Number with PAN being 30.09.2019, it is also made clear that w.e.f. 01.04.2019, it is mandatory to quote and link Aadhaar number while filing the return of income, unless specifically exempted,” the government said.
This is the sixth time the government has extended the document linking deadline.
