The last date for linking a PAN card with an Aadhaar number has been extended from 31 March to 30 June 2023. Even before this, the last date for Pan-Aadhaar Linking has been extended twice. First of all, the last date for linking PAN with Aadhaar was 31 March 2022. For the first time, it was extended till 30 June 2022. After this, the deadline was again extended to 31 March 2023.
This time the government has given only 3 months. It is also discussed that after June 30 it will not be extended again. That’s why it is necessary that those who have not yet linked Aadhaar and PAN, should get it done within this period. Otherwise, later many works will be stopped and then they will be linked after paying the fine.
