AN-aadhaar Link: The deadline to link your PAN Card with your Aadhaar Card is the end of this month. As per the latest notification issued by the finance ministry, the last date to link your Aadhar Card with PAN Card is September 30, 2019. The government has extended the deadline several times in recent past.
Earlier it was defined that if you did not link your PAN Card with your Aadhaar card by September 30, 2019, your PAN Card will become invalid. However, as per the new rule, if the PAN card and Aadhar are not linked by the end of this month, the PAN card would become ‘inoperative’. The government is, however, yet to define what it means by the term ‘inoperative’.
