Link Aadhaar with PAN by 31 March 2023: Know how to pay fees

It is mandatory for all the taxpayers to link their Aadhaar with their Permanent Account Number (PAN) by 31 March 2023, as notified by the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT). If an individual fails to do so, then he or she is going to be liable to consequences under The Income-tax (I-T) Act. If you don’t link your two documents, then your PAN will become inoperative, which will result in problems in filing the income tax returns. According to the Income Tax Department, Aadhaar-PAN linking was free of cost before 31 March 2022. But from 1 April 2022, a charge of Rs 500 was imposed, and increased to Rs 1,000 from 1 July, 2022.

An e-pay functionality has been provided by the Income Tax department to make the required payment in order to proceed with the Aadhaar-PAN linking. Numerous banks have been authorised by the department for e-pay functionality, including Bank of India, Axis Bank, Canara Bank, and Central Bank of India.
