In a notice issued by the Central Government of India, the linking of the existing Aadhaar numbers with permanent account number (PAN) of taxpayers has been made mandatory. The deadline of the same has been extended to August 31.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley through an amendment to tax proposals in the Finance Bill for 2017-18 had made Aadhaar mandatory for filing income tax returns and provided for linking of PAN with Aadhaar to check tax evasion through use of multiple PAN cards. Even while applying for a new PAN card; it will be mandatory to furnish 12-digit Aadhaar card details.
