PAN-Aadhaar Link: The Income Tax Department has told the PAN card users that if PAN and Aadhaar have not yet been linked, then get it done as soon as possible. The Income Tax Department has informed on Twitter that March 31, 2023 is the last date to link PAN with Aadhaar card. In such a situation, if the link is not done, then from April 1, 2023, the PAN card will become inoperative. This means that you will not be able to use the PAN card.
The Income Tax Department has written on Twitter that under Section 1961 it is mandatory to link all PAN card holders with Aadhaar. If someone does not do this work by March 31, 2023, then he will not be able to use his PAN card from April 1. The last date is near and you should link it today itself.
Will not be able to link even after paying penalty
Now fine has to be paid for linking PAN card with Aadhaar (PAN Card Penalty), but if you go to link it after March 31, then this work will not be done even after paying the penalty. However, for doing this work, a fine will have to be paid. If a person now links his PAN with his Aadhaar, he is liable to pay a late fee of Rs 1,000. This is because the date for linking without paying the fine has passed.
How to link Aadhaar with PAN card
To link Aadhaar with PAN card, you must first visit the Income Tax e-filing website. You must have valid PAN number, valid Aadhaar number, valid mobile number. Now to pay the penalty you have to select TIN option on e-payment and select ‘Proceed’ option in Non-TDS.

After entering the captcha code and making the payment, you will have to wait for 4 to 5 days.
After 4-5 days, visit the Income Tax e-filing website to link your PAN with your Aadhaar. Login to e-filing here and go to the dashboard, under Link Aadhaar to PAN option, click on Link Aadhaar. Your PAN will be linked with Aadhaar.
