The Central government has now made PAN and Aadhaar cardinterchangeable .

This implies that you can now quote your Aadhaar number, instead of PAN, to file Income Tax returns.

Further, Aadhaar can also be used for other services where quoting of PAN is necessary, such as buying/selling financial instruments like MF, gold etc.

Note: August 31, 2019 is the last date to file ITR.


Linkage
Your PAN might get deactivated, if not linked with Aadhaar

Notably, the government is planning to temporarily invalidate all PAN cards that are not linked with Aadhaar latest by September 30, 2019.

The thought behind the move is that the government believes that if after so many extensions, your PAN isn't yet linked with Aadhaar, its authenticity is questionable.

Simply put, the government is skeptic that your PAN might be fake.
