  • Supreme Court on 30 October had said that a Constitution Bench would commence hearing on the clutch of petitions against Aadhaar scheme from the last week of November

In a statement, the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) under the Finance Ministry stated "It has come to notice that some of the taxpayers have not yet completed the linking of PAN with Aadhaar". The government is expected to notify extensions in deadlines for Aadhaar linking with bank accounts and other services soon.

The Centre is willing to extend the deadline fixed for mandatory linking of Aadhaar in order to avail various services and welfare schemes till March 31.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court has set up a five-judge bench to hear next week a plea challenging the move to link Aadhaar with other services on the ground that it infringes on citizens' privacy. The date for linking of Aadhaar with PAN was initially extended till 31st August, 2017 which was further extended upto 31st December, 2017.

However, the last date for linking mobile phone number with Aadhaar remains February 6, 2018.

"There can not be a stay on the Aadhaar scheme which has gone on for years", Venugopal had argued, adding that the current deadline of December 31 will be extended till March 31 next year and a notification to this effect may be issued on Saturday.

The deadline for linking PAN card with Aadhaar has been extended by three months to March 31, 2018, the government said today. The petitioners sought hearing on their interim applications to stay the ongoing Aadhaar enrolment till the court takes a call on the validity of the said scheme. This, he said, was on account of the matter being pending with the court.

The government has made it mandatory for verifying bank account and PAN to weed out black money and bring unaccounted wealth to book. In June 2017, the government also made it mandatory to link Aadhaar with bank accounts, insurance, DMAT accounts, mutual funds and pension.
