Aadhaar still not linked? Do not panic

Scrambling to link your Aadhaar and PAN card? Don't worry, there's still time PAN card won't be invalid if not linked with Aadhaar by 1 July: IT Department

To file income tax returns, the linking of Aadhaar card and Permanent Account Number (PAN) card is compulsory for taxpayers, however, if your Aadhar is not linked with your PAN before July 1, your PAN will NOT become invalid. However, the notification did not specify how this was to be done, said Sonu Iyer, Tax Partner and People Advisory Services leader at EY India.

Once done, you can check if your cards have been linked by re-typing your details into the portal and if the two have been linked you will get a pop-up saying, "Your PAN is already linked to the given Aadhaar Number".

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.

The Union Government in March 2017 made Aadhaar card mandatory to file Income Tax Return (ITR) with effect from 1 July 2017. According to the Income Tax Department, linking the two numbers is the key to "seamlessly avail online, a world of income tax facilities".

The Indian Railways will not provide any type of concession in train tickets without a valid Aadhaar number. The options to link card will remain open after June 30.

The government quoted that Aadhaar ID is a must at the time of application of PAN.

On logging in to the site, a pop up window will appear prompting you to link your PAN card with Aadhaar card. What if one fails to do Aadhaar-PAN linking? Go to http://www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in & tick on Link Aadhaar.

Note that the Section says, "on or before a date to be notified by the Central Government", meaning that the unlinked PAN card will only become invalid only after a deadline which is yet to be set by the Centre. The senior tax official addressed the two major concerns of taxpayers in this context: "It has been made abundantly clear that no PAN, which is not linked to Aadhaar, will be cancelled from July 1".

"In case where Aadhaar name is completely different from name in PAN database then the linkage may fall and the PAN holder has to change the name in either Aadhaar or in PAN database or visit personally to designated PAN application centre of NSDL eGov or UTIITSL for Biometric Aadhaar authentication", the Income Tax Department said on microblogging site Twitter. "There is no need for panic as your PAN card will not become invalid after June 30 and new deadline for linking PAN with Aadhaar will be announced shortly", said Sushil Chandra, chairman of Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT).
