Aadhaar-PAN linking deadline extended to September 30

New Delhi: The cut-off date for intimating Aadhaar number and linking PAN with Aadhaar is September 30, said the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) in a statement on Sunday.

The CBDT has already given several extensions of the deadline to link PAN-Aadhaar numbers and now the CBDT has again extended the due date for linking Aadhaar number with PAN till September 30.

“It has been reported in some sections of the media that those PANs which are not linked with Aadhaar number by March 31, 2019, may be invalidated,” said the CBDT.

“The matter has been considered by the Central government and now the cut-off date for intimating the Aadhaar number and linking PAN with Aadhaar is September 30, 2019, unless specifically exempted,” stated CBDT in the statement.

However, the CBDT clarified that it is mandatory to quote and link the Aadhaar number while filing the income tax return with effect from April 1.

“Notwithstanding the last date of intimating/linking of Aadhaar number with PAN being September 30, 2019, it is also made clear that that with effect from April 1, 2019, it is mandatory to quote and link Aadhaar number while filing the return of income, unless specifically exempted,” said the CBDT in the statement.
