NEW DELHI:The Indian government on Saturday extended the due date for linking PAN or Permanent Account Number with the Aadhaar number – also known as the Unique Identity Number – by three months.
In a notification, the Finance Ministry said the new deadline for linking the Aadhaar number with PAN will be December 31. This marks the seventh time the government has extended the deadline for the public to link the two identification numbers.
Last extension was in March this year, when the government had pushed the last date by six months to September 30. The Supreme Court had in September last year declared the government’s flagship Aadhaar scheme as constitutionally valid and held that quoting of the Unique Identity Number would remain mandatory for filing of income tax returns and allotment of PAN. – Agencies
