If you are looking for another way to link Pan and Aadhaar cards because the income tax webpage for linking Aadhaar is down, there is an offline way.
Today (March 31) is the last day to tie the two cards for taxpayers and non-taxpayers. According to tax law, if Aadhaar is not related to Pan, taxpayers will not be able to carry out any financial transactions. This may also result in a penalty of Rs 10,000 in accordance with Section 272B of the Income Tax Act. Without a Pan card, a bank transaction greater than Rs 50,000 is not authorized. Thus, it becomes important that the Pan card and the Aadhaar card are linked.
One can link the two documents by sending an SMS and also by visiting the service center for PAN. Find out how to link the two offline maps:
– To connect it via an SMS, you must send an SMS to 567678 or 56161. The format of the SMS is’ UIDAIPAN (12-digit Aadhaar number) space (10-digit PAN number).
– In the case of offline mode, the taxpayer will also have to deliver a copy of the Pan card and the Aadhaar card to the service center.
