18 crore PAN card holders did not do this must-do work, it has been delayed for 7 months

Statistics released by the central government show that about 18 crore permanent account numbers (PANs) cards of the country are not linked to Aadhaar card. According to the data, 32.71 crore PANs have been added so far from the biometric identity card.

At the same time, till June 29, 50.95 crore PAN has been allocated. This means that even around 18 crore PAN cards are not linked to Aadhaar. If you too are included in this list, then you have only 7 months of deferment.

Actually, in view of the Corona crisis in the past, the government had pushed forward many important deadlines related to finance. One of these deadlines is PAN and Aadhaar linking.

Now by 31 March 2021, it has been granted to link PAN and Aadhaar. According to the Income Tax Department, if PAN is not added to Aadhaar within the stipulated period, it will become inactive.

Here is how you can link Pan card with Aadhaar card

  • First of all, you have to go to the income tax website incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in.
  • Click on Aadhaar link option which you will find on the left side
  • As soon as you click on the Aadhaar link option a new page will open, on top of which click here will be written in red.
  • If you have already linked your PAN and Aadhaar, then its status can be verified by clicking on it.
  • If linking is not done, then in the box below click here, PAN, Aadhaar number, your name and the given captcha will have to be entered.
  • Send an SMS to 567678 or 56161 to get information about the status of the link from PAN to Aadhaar.

    AS REGARDS LINKING of PAN with AADHAR it is submitted for special consideration that:-
    A) BOTH THE SAID IDs are compulsory for each & every Indian Citizon. The current policies are proper Guidelines for URBON AREAS & not for RURAL PUBLIC DUE TO more than 70% illiterate public. How don’t know even the diffenation of PAN CARD as well as PURPOSE & IMPORTANCE OF LINKAGE WITH AADHAR.
    B) ONLY THE EXTENTION OF LAST DATE is not a remedy/solution of the Problum. But door to door approach , specially in RURAL AREAS to ensure 100% issuance of PAN & the Spot Linking with AADHAR , is too much important. throughout the country.
    C) Without considering to launch any such PROGRAM it is never possible to ensure 100% issue & PANs & specially the LINKAGE THEREOF with AADHAR within such a short period & even within more time of 2 years or more. Kindly like to consider sympathetically

    IT department should not insist on linking Aadhar with PAN. Instead they can issue fresh PAN card using the details available in Aadhar. They are taking there own sweet time when we request for alterations in PAN card.
