The Income Tax department is reportedly going to take a tough stand against all those who fail to link their PAN card with their Aadhaar card by the end of this month. The last date to link Permanent Account Number (PAN) with Aadhaar has been extended to June 30.

To comply with the norms, the income tax department has asked companies to make sure that their employees link the documents by June 30. According to a report in News18, if an employee fails to link PAN with their Aadhaar card by end of June then the company will not credit their salary from the next month. 

According to Clause 41 of Section 139AA of the Income Tax Act, "If a person fails to intimate the Aadhaar number, the permanent account number allotted to such person shall be made inoperative after the notified date in the manner as may be provided by rules." 

Due to the deadly coronavirus pandemic in India, the Income Tax department had earlier revised the deadline to link the Aadhaar card and PAN details in 2020. Earlier, the Employees' Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) had made it mandatory to link Aadhaar Card with PF UAN (universal account number) to get PF contributions from the employers and other benefits. 

During Budget 2021, the Union government had also added a new section 234H in the Income Tax Act, where an individual will have to pay a penalty if PAN and Aadhaar are not linked by the end of the deadline date. 

Here's how you can check if your PAN and Aadhaar card are linked

  1. Go to the official site of the Income Tax department — www.incometax.gov.in.
  2. Under "Our Services", there will be an option of "Link Aadhaar" on the homepage.
  3. Click on the "Link Aadhaar Know About your Aadhaar PAN linking Status" option.
  4. Enter your PAN and Aadhaar Card details in the mentioned box.
  5. Once you fill in the details, click on "View Link Aadhaar Status".
  6. The status of your Aadhaar-PAN will be displayed on the page.
