Jayesh Dadia

Every person who is allotted a PAN and who is eligible to obtain an Aadhar card should link both the numbers on or before March 31, 2022. If you fail to do so, the PAN allotted shall be made inoperative after the given date. However, the Income Tax Department will allow you to intimate your Aadhar number even after March 31, 2022 by making a payment of ₹500 if you do so between April 1, 2022 and June 30, 2022 and thereafter by paying ₹1,000 up to the given time limit.

If PAN becomes inoperative, it shall be deemed that you have not furnished, intimated or quoted PAN and accordingly you will be liable to the consequences arising thereon. The consequences shall come into effect from April 1, 2023 if you fail to link PAN with Aadhar even within the extended one year timeframe. Thereafter, you may face tax deduction at a higher rate. You may also not be able to file return of income which will result in penalty and prosecution.

It wasn't always this way. We were not so often the headline. Our elders' safety was not a cause célèbre. We weren't even sure that we were a "we"-can so many people with so little in common say that? Still, there were a few shared things. Cooking ingredients, tropes we were sick of. And when the attacks first started in early 2020, we found we shared another: a terrible feeling of dread.
