The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has given more time for taxpayers to link their Aadhaar with the permanent accountant numbers (PAN).

The earlier specified deadline of December 31, 2017 has been extended to March 31 next year.

“It has come to notice that some of the taxpayers have not yet completed the linking of PAN with Aadhaar.

Therefore, to facilitate the process of linking, it has been decided to further extend the time for linking of Aadhaar with PAN till March 31, 2018”, CBDT said in a statement here on Friday.

Under the provisions of recently introduced section 139AA of the Income-tax Act, 1961, with effect from 01.07.2017, all taxpayers having Aadhaar Number or Enrolment Number are required to link the same with Permanent Account Number (PAN).

In view of the difficulties faced by some of the taxpayers in the process, the date for linking of Aadhaar with PAN was initially extended till August 31, 2017, which was further extended upto December 31, 2017. Now the deadline has been extended to arch 31 next year.
