So many warnings have been already released by Income Tax Departments and several times the deadline has been extended to link PAN-Aadhaar. But, this time the deadline is real and will not be moved further. So, if you don’t link your PAN and Aadhaar this time by March 31, 2023, your PAN Card will become inoperative. If your document becomes inactive it will be just a piece of plastic. We are bringing this up because, recently, the income tax department has released a new warning through a tweet.
