If you have a PAN card and do not want to get into any trouble in the future, then read this news carefully. If ignored, your PAN can be deactivated. The Income Tax Department has alerted the card holders by tweeting. The department has told through Twitter that by March 31, 2023, link your PAN card with Aadhaar (Pan-Aadhaar Link). In case this does not happen, the card will be deactivated from 1st April.
The Income Tax Department has informed the PAN card holders about this in a tweet on Tuesday, January 17, through the official Twitter handle of the department. It states, ‘As per the Income Tax Act, 1961, it is mandatory for all PAN card holders (who do not fall in the exempted category) to link their PAN with Aadhaar before March 31, 2023. Unlinked PAN will be inactive from 1 April 2023. In its tweet, the department wrote, ‘Urgent Notice. Don’t delay, link it today!

The Income Tax Department records the complete financial data of the cardholders through the number registered on this card. In such a situation, it is necessary to take this alert seriously, otherwise you may get into trouble further.
