No Deadline Fixed to complete Aadhar-PAN Linkage says Arun Jaitley

On Friday, 11th August 2017 Finance Minister Arun Jaitley informed the Loksabha that there is no Deadline fixed to complete Aadhar-PAN Linkage.

“No Madam” Finance Minister said this while replying to a query which stated as whether the government has fixed any time frame to complete the linking of 12-Digit Aadhar Number with Permanent Account Number(PAN).

Earlier Government had extended the last date to the link of Aadhar with PAN to August 31st, 2017.  The government has initiated this move by keeping in mind “in view of difficulties faced by the taxpayers”. However, returns of the people will not be processed until the linking of Aadhar with PAN is completed. The Government also said “Actual linking of PAN with Aadhar” can be done subsequently before 31st August 2017.

The Government has said earlier that in order to file income tax return, one can link to Aadhar Number or Aadhar Acknowledgement number on the E-filing website. By this, it is clear that it is enough to link Aadhar number or Aadhar Acknowledgement Number on E-filing website. This is not required for the people who have already link Aadhar with PAN. For all the people, who have filed the tax, they need to link Aadhar card with PAN till 31st August 2017.

While, as per the latest statement by Finance Minister, there is no time frame to link Aadhar Card with PAN.

As per the data of June 28, there are total 25 Crore PAN Card holders while Aadhar Card is issued by more than 111 Crore people.
