As per reports by PTI, the Supreme Court is hearing petitions challenging the government’s decision on Aadhaar and has posted the matter for next hearing in November and hence the extension of date for PAN-Aadhaar linking was in line.

It has to be noted that those categorised as non-resident Indians as per the Income Tax laws, people who are not citizens of India, those above 80 years of age and residents of the states of Assam, Meghalaya and Jammu and Kashmir had been exempt from the requirement. To file income tax returns, it is mandatory for the tax payer to link Aadhaar and PAN. The deadline for linking PAN with Aadhaar previously was July 31 but was extended to August 31.

In August, the government informed that the Unique Identification Authority of India had deactivated close to 81 lakh Aadhaar numbers while as on July 27, more than 11.44 lakh permanent account numbers (PANs) were deleted or de-activated in cases where multiple PANs were found allotted to one person.
