Link Your PAN & Aadhar Before This Date Or Pay Fine, Says SBI

New Delhi: All those who have an account in The State Bank of India  (SBI) need to get their PAN-Aadhaar card linked by June 30. The Bank says if they fail to do so, they will face difficulty enjoying a seamless banking service.

 

“We advise our customers to link their PAN with Aadhaar to avoid any inconvenience and continue enjoying a seamless banking service,” SBI said in a tweet.

The tweet has further stated that the linking of PAN with the Aadhaar is mandatory. If PAN and Aadhaar are not linked, then PAN will be rendered inactive and cannot be quoted for conducting specified transactions. The last date for linking PAN with Aadhaar is June 30, 2021.

The government has made several extensions to the deadline since July 2017 to facilitate the linking of the two identity numbers. And, now the last date to link these documents is June 30. Failing to do so, the income tax department might impose a penalty of Rs 1,000 and the PAN will also become invalid.

3) Fill in PAN number, Aadhaar number and name.

4) Fill in the CAPTCHA.
