News About Verification of PAN

  • Aadhaar Card can now be used to make transactions more than Rs.50,000

    Finance Minister, Nirmala Sitharaman during her speech on the day of the Union Budget 2019 stressed on how Aadhaar Card and the PAN card can be used interchangeably.

    With this, transactions above Rs.50,000 for which a PAN card was a must before, can now be made with the Aadhaar card. Banks and other financial institutions will be making arrangements to accept Aadhaar card instead of the PAN card.

    PAN cards were made to be compulsory to authenticate the transactions of hotel and travel bills above Rs.50,000 in order to curb black money. PAN cards were also required for all immovable property purchases valued at more than Rs.10 lakh.

    During the Union Budget, the Finance Minister mentioned that in the place of PAN cards, Aadhaar cards can be used in order to file income tax returns.

    Revenue Secretary Ajay Bhushan Pandey confirmed that if a person needs to withdraw or deposit more than Rs.50,000, he or she can use their Aadhaar card if they do not hold a PAN card.

    The Supreme Court has upheld Section 139AA of the Income Tax Act. In March, the government of India had extended the last day of linking PAN card and Aadhaar Card to 30 September 2019. If you do not have a PAN card, adding your Aadhaar card is necessary for filing your Income Tax returns.
