Linking Aadhaar to PAN Card Deadline extended up to December 31, 2017

This extension has given huge relief to those who have filed their ITR by the due date 5th August 2017, who were unable to link their PAN with Aadhaar Number.

The main reason behind deadline extension is because many taxpayers were unable to file their Income Tax Return because they could not link their PAN with Aadhaar. The tax department even had received lots of complaints from taxpayers sayings they were unable to link their Aadhaar with PAN due to their minor difference in name or details in both Aadhaar and PAN, also few people were not holding Aadhaar Card yet.
