PAN-Aadhaar Link Status Check: Verify the Link Between Your Aadhaar Card and PAN Card

In a significant development, the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has announced that failure to link your Permanent Account Number (PAN) with your Aadhaar number before June 30, 2023, will render your PAN inoperative starting from July 1, 2023.

To ensure the smooth functioning of your PAN, it is crucial to confirm the linkage between your PAN and Aadhaar. This article will guide you through the process of checking the PAN-Aadhaar link status and provide essential details you need to know.

The last date for linking PAN with Aadhaar has been extended by the CBDT until June 30. Initially, until March 31, 2022, users were given the opportunity to link their PAN with Aadhaar without any fees. However, individuals who failed to meet the deadline were allowed to complete the PAN-Aadhaar linking by paying a late fee of Rs 500 until June 30, 2022.

Starting from June 30, 2022, until March 31, 2023, the late fee for PAN-Aadhaar linking increased to Rs 1000. This deadline has been further extended until June 30. VLRS46H5

This means that you still have the chance to link your PAN and Aadhaar until June 30. Remember, failure to comply with this requirement will result in your PAN becoming inoperative. Make sure to follow the instructions provided below to check the status of your PAN-Aadhaar link.

On multiple occasions, the CBDT has emphasized the importance of taxpayers linking their PAN and Aadhaar before the due date. Failing to complete the process may result in consequences that can be easily avoided.

If you encounter any issues during the PAN-Aadhaar linking process, refer to the section on what to do if the linking fails even after paying Rs 1000.

To link your PAN with a valid Aadhaar, you can visit the official income tax e-filing website (incometax.gov.in) and follow the instructions provided. A fee of Rs 1000 is applicable for this service.

According to a report by the Financial Express, approximately 510 million PANs have already been linked with Aadhaar as of the March 31 deadline. However, considering that there are around 630 million PANs in total, it appears that nearly 20% of PAN users have yet to complete the linking process.

Now, let’s delve into the steps you need to take to check the status of your PAN-Aadhaar link:

  1. Visit the income tax e-filing website (incometax.gov.in).
  2. Navigate to the “Link Aadhaar Status” tab.
  3. Alternatively, you can directly access the link by visiting https://eportal.incometax.gov.in/iec/foservices/#/pre-login/link-aadhaar-status.
  4. Once you click on the provided link, a new page will open.
  5. On this page, you will be required to enter your PAN and Aadhaar details accurately.
  6. After entering the necessary information, click on the “View Link Aadhaar Status” button.
  7. The system will then inform you whether your PAN and Aadhaar are successfully linked or not.

If you have not yet completed the PAN-Aadhaar linking process, we strongly advise you to do so immediately. Avoid the inconvenience of having an inoperative PAN by ensuring that your PAN and Aadhaar are effectively linked.
