Aadhaar-PAN Linking Mandatory From July 1. How To Do It

Ravi Shankar Prasad and a'linked Pan and Aadhaar Card

Section 139AA (2) of the Income Tax Act mandates that every person having a PAN as on the July 1, 2017, and who is eligible to obtain Aadhaar, shall intimate his Aadhaar on or before a date to be notified by the Central Government.

However, in case of assessees whose names given in the Aadhaar and PAN cards have a "minor mismatch", according to the Income Tax Department, the linking can be achieved using an online facility. However, the notification did not specify how this was to be done, said Sonu Iyer, Tax Partner and People Advisory Services leader at EY India.

In case you are among those anxious about losing your PAN card because you haven't yet linked it to your Aadhaar number, fret not.

The apex court has granted a partial stay on invalidating PAN cards of non-Aadhaar holders for a while.

An individual will have to mention both PAN and Aadhaar numbers, the spelling of the names mentioned on them and give a signed declaration that the Aadhaar number provided in the application form has "not been provided" by them for the objective of linking it with "any other PAN". The Government will not cancel the PAN card if they do not have the Aadhaar.

The new revisions also make the Aadhaar number compulsory for new PAN application.

The binding factor for taxpayers would be the invalidation of their PAN cards if they do not acquire an Adhaar card and link the two. The department clarified that it will notify a date later from when PAN without Aadhaar will not be valid.

If you have been unable to link your PAN card and Aadhaar number, do not worry. If you don't see the popup, go to blue tab on the top bar named "Profile Settings" and click on "Link Aadhaar". "PAN will not become invalid after June 30", Sushil Chandra, chairman of Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) told Economic Times. However, a holder of both the documents may face issues in filing taxes, while those having an Aadhaar and wanting to apply for a new PAN will have to furnish the Aadhaar details in the PAN application. From July 1, linking of existing Aadhaar numbers with taxpayers' PAN will be mandatory. Moreover, those filing ITRs (Income-tax returns) and who haven't linked their PAN with their Aadhar could still choose to mention their Aadhar number while filing.

Aadhaar is issued by the UIDAI to a resident of India, while PAN is a ten-digit alphanumeric number allotted by the I-T department to a person, firm or entity.
