The government’s mandate to link PAN and Aadhar ended on June 30, 2023. With the government unwilling to extend the timelines, it was a mandatory step. The last date has been extended several times upto now. The government has not released anything in the Press about not extending the timelines beyond 30th June of this year.

If you are wondering what will happen if you don’t link the PAN and Aadhar, you must be ready to understand that your PAN card will stop working hereon. Most of us know what happens when the PAN becomes inoperative.
