  • Supreme Court Asks Centre To Consider Correcting Anomalies

    A bench comprising of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A.M Khanwilkar and D.Y Chandrachud has asked the Central Government to consider correcting the anomalies regarding the linking of PAN and Aadhaar with respect to transgenders.

    Appearing for the Centre, Attorney General K.K Venugopal assured the SC bench that the government was aware of the problem. He added that they were working on finding a solution to deal with the unwanted situation. It needs to be mentioned that the problem has surfaced because PAN does not have the option of third gender even though Aadhaar provides it. The issue has been brought to light many times recently as transgenders across the country have filed petitions demanding Supreme Court to pass a directive which forces the government to include the option of third category in PAN cards.

  • Linking Aadhaar-PAN deadline extended till 31 August

    The announcement of linking Aadhaar-PAN becoming a mandate came as a surprise to most people. The deadline to complete this task was 31st of July, however, many people were unable to carry out the linking due to technical and other factors. Considering the fact that a huge amount of people were unable to complete the linking process due to lack of provision, the government has decided to the extended the deadline until the end of August i.e., 31 August. Moreover, the last date for e-filing tax returns has been extended till 5 August. The government also noticed a surge in the number of people rushing to their nearby Aadhaar centre to either enrol for the Aadhaar or to make corrections on their Aadhaar. There are many individuals who do not have either the Aadhaar or the PAN or both to initiate the linking process. Knowing the importance of Aadhaar and PAN which is required to avail various benefits and also to carry out financial transactions, it has become essential for the people to obtain the Aadhaar as soon as possible.

  • Income Tax Department Launches Online Service To Correct PAN, Aadhaar Errors

    The Income Tax department has launched a service to correct errors in information on PAN cards and Aadhaar cards. The online service is available on the department’s e-filing website, where individuals can update changes to be made in their PAN or Aadhaar cards.

    The site has two hyperlinks, the first being for those who wish to update changes in their PAN cards, while the second one is for changes to Aadhaar card details.

    While over 1.22 crore individuals have Aadhaar-linked PAN, the government is looking to increase numbers since there are over 25 crore PAN cards that have been issued and over 111 crore Aadhaar cards.

    A big reason behind the low numbers for Aadhaar-linked Pan is a discrepancy in information on the PAN and Aadhaar, which prevents the two from being linked. The new service is aimed at addressing this.
