Recently, the Delhi high court allowed two assessees to file their income tax return for FY 2017-18 (AY 2018-19) without linking PAN with Aadhaar. The same decision has been set aside by the supreme court.
The Supreme Court in its verdict held that
Due to technical glitches or some other issues, some of you were not able to link even if your name, gender, and date of birth matched exactly in both the documents. After considering this undue hardship, now the IT Dept has come up with a new option for linking. Therefore, apart from the online options explained above to link Aadhaar with PAN Card , IT Dept has started an "OFFLINE" option also to resolve the issue faced by many individuals while linking. The offline method is really simple just keep the below points in mind :
- You have to visit personally at any nearby TIN - FC Center, follow the Biometric authentication procedure and fill a form.
- Do remember to carry your ORIGINAL PAN Card and Aadhaar Card with you.
Note: To facilitate the process of linking, the last date for linking of Aadhaar with PAN was extended to 31/03/2018 and then to 30/06/2018 . But now, as per the recent CBDT circular, it has been further extended till 31st March 2019.
