Aadhar-PAN Linking: Whether you have linked your Aadhaar card with PAN card till now. If you have not done it, then definitely do this work before 30 June 2023. Because the last date to link Aadhaar with PAN by paying a penalty of Rs 1,000 is June 30.
In a tweet, the Income Tax Department has advised people to link Aadhaar with PAN under any circumstances before June 30. The Income Tax Department said that all PAN holders who do not fall in the exempted category under the Income Tax Act, 1961, are required to do this. Link Aadhaar on or before 30 June 2023. Income tax has said to link Aadhaar with PAN today itself.
If a person does not link Aadhaar with PAN card by 30 June 2023, then the PAN card will become non-operative and he will have to bear the brunt of it. Under this action, refund will not be given to taxpayers having such PAN. No interest will be paid on the refund for the period the PAN remains inoperative. Excess TDS and TCS will be charged from such taxpayers.
Those who have been exempted from PAN-Aadhaar linking will not be subjected to this action and will not face the consequences. In this category come people who reside in certain states, are non-residents under the Act. Also those people who are not Indian citizens and have been above 80 years of age till last year.
Why is it necessary to link Aadhaar with PAN?
If PAN card is not linked with Aadhaar then you will not be able to open mutual fund, demat account, bank account, because PAN card is necessary for all these. If the PAN card is locked due to non-linking of Aadhaar card and PAN card, then you will not be able to avail any facility where PAN card is mandatory. That’s why you have not yet linked PAN and Aadhaar card, so complete this work soon.
