The notification stated, "Every person who has been allotted permanent account number as on the 1st day of July, 2017 and who in accordance with the provisions of sub-section (2) of section 139AA is required to intimate his Aadhaar number, shall intimate his Aadhaar number to the Principal Director General of Income-tax (Systems) or Director-General of Income-tax (Systems) or the person authorised by the said authorities".

Individuals can link their Aadhaar number with PAN through SMS.

Scrambling to link your Aadhaar and PAN card? Don't worry, there's still time

The earlier link that read, "Link Aadhaar!' does not appear on the income tax page any more". There are so many options by which people can Link their Pan card to Aadhaar card.

The government will also soon announce a date after which a PAN not linked to Aadhaar will be considered invalid.

Because the Supreme Court has ruled that the law requiring you to link your Aadhaar to your PAN, and making Aadhaar mandatory for filing the income tax returns is a valid one.

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. This is however only a partial relief.

The deadline for linking bank accounts to Aadhaar is December 31.

"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.

While Aadhaar is issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) to a resident of India, PAN is a ten-digit alphanumeric number allotted in the by the I-T Department to a person, firm or entity.
