PAN to become inoperative after March 31 if not linked with Aadhaar

The Income Tax department says your PAN will become inoperative if you don't link it with Aadhaar by March 31, 2020, according to a PTI report.

The deadline for PAN-Aadhaar linking has been extended multiple times. The previous deadline was December 31, 2019.

IT department said "Where a person, who has been allotted the permanent account number as on July1, 2017 and is required to intimate his Aadhaar number under sub-section (2) of section 139AA, has failed to intimate the same on or before March 31, 2020, the permanent account number of such person shall become inoperative immediately after the said date for the purposes of furnishing, intimating or quoting under the Act."
