Such customers may also face a penalty of Rs 1,000 as per the Finance Bill, 2021.
31st March 2021 Is Last Date To Link Your Aadhar Card To Pan Card
The Finance Bill was passed by the Parliament earlier this month. The government inserted a new section – 234H in the Bill. This section says that “Without prejudice to the provisions of this Act, where a person is required to intimate his Aadhaar number under sub-section (2) of section 139AA and such person fails to do so on or before such date, as may be prescribed, he shall be liable to pay such fee, as may be prescribed, not exceeding one thousand rupees (Rs 1,000), at the time of making intimation under sub-section (2) of section 139AA after the said date.”
As per the new rule, the government has made it mandatory to link Aadhaar card while applying for a new PAN card. In case of new PAN card applicants, interlinking is done automatically at the application stage.
For existing PAN cardholders, however, interlinking has to be done manually before the set deadline. PAN card holders are, therefore, advised to link PAN with Aadhaar to avoid any penalty.
