Failure to link your PAN-Aadhaar card within the specified timeframe results in the deactivation of your PAN card, which creates obstacles in conducting financial transactions. The government has implemented 15 restrictions on individuals who have not completed the PAN-Aadhaar linkage. These limitations affect a range of money-related activities that you will be unable to perform.

To simplify the retrieval and comparison of taxpayer details, encompassing investments, loans, and business operations, the government implemented the Permanent Account Number (PAN). Its purpose is to combat tax evasion effectively. Experts emphasize the significance of connecting PAN with Aadhaar for numerous financial transactions. Failing to link your PAN with Aadhaar restricts you from engaging in activities like cash transactions, stock trading, and obtaining bank loans.
