Your PAN is an important document/KYC requirement in not only filling your Income Tax returns but also in all financial transactions . The Government of India has made it compulsory for every individual with a PAN to link with their Aadhaar number. The last date to link your PAN with Aadhaar is now extended to March 31, 2021.
Also, as per Rule 114 B of the Income Tax Rules, it is necessary to mention your PAN in all transactions if your insurance premium in the financial year is more than Rs. 50,000. Thus, to avoid any inconvenience & non-compliance we advise you to link your PAN and Aadhaar before the last date.
