    Have you linked your Permanent Account Number (PAN) with Aadhaar card? If not, you need to do as early as possible as the last date to link the same is March 31, 2022. In case you miss the deadline, you will have to face consequences. If you fail to link the documents by the given deadline then your PAN card will become invalid and you will also have to pay Rs. 1,000 for PAN Aadhaar linking. Other than this, if you furnish the invalid PAN Card for official use then under Section 272N of the Income Tax Act 1961, the Assessing Officer may direct you to pay a penalty sum of Rs. 10,000. In order to avoid such situations you can link PAN and Aadhaar online by visiting the official website of the Income Tax Department.
