“As per the Income Tax Act, 1961, the last date to link PAN with Aadhaar is 31.3.2023 for all PAN who holders who do not fall in the exempted category. If not linked with Aadhaar, PAN will become inactive,” tweeted the CBDT through the IT department’s handle, adding that such users won’t be able to use PAN starting April 1, 2023 .

आयकर अधिनियम, 1961 के अनुसार, पैन को आधार से लिंक करने की अंतिम तिथि, उन सभी पैन धारकों के लिए जो छूट की श्रेणी में नहीं आते हैं, 31.3.2023 है। पैन को आधार से लिंक न करने पर पैन निष्क्रिय हो जाएगा।
