Aadhar PAN Card Link:- The deadline for pan aadhaar link cards is rapidly approaching. All individuals holding a PAN card are required to connect their PAN cards with their Aadhaar cards to ensure the continued validity of their PAN card. However, there might be uncertainty regarding whether this linkage has already been established. Therefore, we advise you to initially verify whether your pan aadhaar link status is associated with your PAN card.
The process to verify the linkage between Aadhaar and PAN is straightforward, as outlined in the following article. In the event that your Aadhaar is not yet linked with your PAN card, it is necessary to complete this linkage by June 30, 2024, while also paying a penalty of Rs. 1,000.
The government has enforced a requirement for taxpayers to link their Aadhaar with their Permanent Account Number (PAN) cards by June 30, 2024. Failing to complete this linkage results in the PAN cards becoming inactive starting from July 1, 2024. Discover the methods for verifying the status of Aadhaar-PAN card linkage, both online and offline, as well as through SMS.

Fees for Aadhaar PAN card linking
The PAN-Aadhaar linking process was free until March 31, 2022. If you completed the PAN-Aadhaar linkage between April 1, 2022, and June 30, 2022, a penalty of Rs. 500 was applicable. However, starting from July 1, 2022, a penalty of Rs. 1,000 is required to link your PAN with your Aadhaar card. Therefore, it is necessary to first settle the Rs. 1,000 penalty for Aadhaar-PAN linkage before June 30, 2024.
If the linkage between PAN and Aadhaar is not established by June 30, 2024, PAN cards will cease to be functional from July 1, 2024.

Therefore, it is mandatory for all taxpayers to complete the PAN-Aadhaar linkage by June 30, 2024, by remitting a penalty of Rs. 1,000. Failure to do so will result in the deactivation of their PAN cards.
Nevertheless, individuals falling under specific categories such as Non-Resident Indians (NRIs), citizens aged 80 years and above, and residents of Assam, Meghalaya, and Jammu and Kashmir are exempt from linking their Aadhaar with PAN cards. It is essential to verify the status of your Aadhaar-PAN linkage to confirm whether your Aadhaar is associated with your PAN card.
