Link PAN-Aadhaar Card before July 1 or Pay Double Penalty: Check Step by Step Guide Here

Categories: Important News

The government had extended the deadline to link PAN Card with Aadhaar Card from March 31, 2022, to March 31, 2023. But this did not come without a caveat. From April 1, 2022, if you have to link Pan and Aadhaar card, you must pay a certain fee. A fee of Rs 500 is applicable if you link your Aadhaar and PAN card before June 30, 2022. But this will get doubled from July 1, 2022.

In order to complete the Aadhaar-PAN linking process, from July 1, you will have to pay a penalty of Rs 1,000. This was announced in a press release by CBDT. It stated, “A window of opportunity has been provided to the taxpayers up to 31st of March 2023 to intimate their Aadhaar to the prescribed authority for Aadhaar-PAN linking without facing repercussions. As a result, taxpayers will be required to pay a fee of Rs 500 up to three months from 1st April 2022 and a fee of Rs.1000 after that, while intimating their Aadhaar.” 

The challan will have to be paid using Challan No ITNS 280. The major head for this is 0021 and the minor head is 500. If the Aadhaar PAN link process is not completed by March 31, 2022, the PAN card will become inoperative.
