The Income Tax Department’s announcement on Wednesday evening came on a day which was to be the last day to link the two documents. In case of no new extension, failure to link Aadhaar with PAN would have resulted in the latter becoming inoperative.
“Central Government extends the last date for linking of Aadhaar number with PAN from 31st March, 2021, in view of the difficulties arising out of the Covid-19 pandemic,” the Income Tax Department tweeted on Wednesday evening.
“Date for issue of notice under section 148 of Income-tax Act 1961, passing of consequential order for direction issued by the Dispute Resolution Panel (DRP) and processing of equalisation levy statements also extended to 30th April, 2021,” it posted in a subsequent tweet.
