The last date to link the Permanent Account Number (PAN) with the Aadhaar card was extended by the Central government from March 31, 2022, to March 31, 2023. Link Aadhaar-PAN before June 31, or pay double penalty.
However, those who missed the March 31, 2022, deadline are now required to pay a penalty for not linking the documents by the due date. Such cardholders will have to pay to Rs 500 as a penalty if they link their Permanent Account Number (PAN) and Aadhaar cards by June 30, 2022.
From July 1, 2022, cardholders who haven’t linked the documents will have to pay a double penalty of Rs 1000. The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) in a recent statement stated that cardholders will have to pay a penalty of Rs 1,000 to complete the Aadhaar-PAN linking process from July 1, 2022.

As a result, taxpayers will be required to pay a fee of Rs 500 up to three months from 1st April 2022 and a fee of Rs.1000 after that, while intimating their Aadhaar,” the department said in its statement.
