Not linking Aadhaar with PAN could invite Income Tax dept's wrath

Many tax payers linked their Aadhar Card with the PAN Card in the month
of June after the government's decision that it would be mandatory to
link the two to file income tax returns

Although Aadhaar and PAN linking was made mandatory, according to income tax laws, from July 1, 2017, the government has pulled out a list which states the class of people who are exempted from linking the documents.

Based on the CBDT directive, following individuals or entities have been kept in the category exempt from compulsory linking of Aadhaar with PAN card.

Out of the about 6.44 crore e-filers registered on the e-filing website of the income tax department, a senior official said, the Aadhaar-PAN linking had been done in about 3.06 crore cases.

By far, 2.07 crore have linked their PAN card to Aadhar.

- If you are above 80 years at any time during the tax year.

The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT), the policy- making body for the I-T department, had said on June 10 that the apex court's order had only given a "partial relief" to those who did not have an Aadhaar or an Aadhaar enrolment ID, and the taxman, hence, "will not cancel" the PAN of such individuals.

The government has ordered taxpayers to link their Aadhar number with their PAN in to check tax evasion through multiple pan cards by linking them to respective unique 12-digit identification number of taxpayers.

But there are 16 men who are making that top figure at the White House Office, with another who is on detail making even more. Currently, there are five staffers dedicated to Melania Trump vs. 24 staffers who servedMichelle Obama (FY2009).

As per the newly introduced section 139AA of the Income Tax Act, every person who has a PAN as on July 1, 2017 and is eligible to obtain Aadhaar Number on the same date shall intimate the same to the tax authorities, failing which their PAN will become invalid from a date that the department would later notify.

The linking of Aadhaar with PAN can also be carried out by personally visiting a PAN Service Centre.

This fresh date is yet to be decided, the person said, adding that 1 July specified earlier for linking Aadhaar with PAN was the deadline only for tax filing purposes.

This was done by exempting these individuals from Section 139AA of the Income Tax Act.

There are over 25 crore PAN numbers allotted, while Aadhaar has been allotted to about 115 crore people.
