The deadline to link PAN with Aadhaar has been extended from December 31 to March 31 next year. The Income Tax department had in September extended the deadline for linking PAN with Aadhaar, marking the seventh extension in the due date for the public to link the two identification numbers.

The CBDT, that frames policy for the Income Tax department, issued a notification today.

"The due date for linking of PAN with Aadhaar as specified under sub-section 2 of section 139AA of the Income-tax Act, 1961 has been extended from December 31, 2019 to March 31, 2020," it said.

As per a directive from the Income Tax Department, it is mandatory to connect your Permanent Account Number (PAN) with the Aadhaar card.

"Building a better tomorrow! To reap seamless benefits of income tax services, complete the vital link before 31st December, 2019," the government body said in a public message.

PAN is a 10-digit alphanumeric number issued the Income Tax department. The Income Tax department has said that if the PAN is not linked with Aadhaar by the due date, PAN will become inoperative.
