    New Deadline For Aadhaar-PAN Linking Is March 31: Know More

    "It has come to notice that some of the taxpayers have not yet completed the linking of PAN with Aadhaar.

    "Therefore, to facilitate the process of linking, it has been decided to further extend the time for linking of Aadhaar with PAN till March 31, 2018," the finance ministry said.

    As of November, 132.8 million out of 330 million PANs have been linked to the 12-digit biometric identifier Aadhaar.

    This year, the government made quoting of Aadhaar mandatory for filing income tax returns (ITRs) as well as obtaining a new PAN.

    Section 139 AA (2) of the Income Tax Act says that every person having PAN as on July 1, 2017, and eligible to obtain Aadhaar, must intimate his Aadhaar number to the tax authorities.

    The government had in August extended by four months the deadline for linking PAN with Aadhaar till December 31, pending the Supreme Court verdict.

    The Supreme Court is hearing petitions challenging the government's decision on Aadhaar.

    The apex court has said it may consider setting up of a constitution bench to hear pleas challenging the Centre's move to make Aadhaar card mandatory for availing various services and benefits of welfare schemes.

    The deadline for linking PAN with Aadhaar previously was July 31 but was extended to August 31 and later to December 31, 2017.
