Going into the details, the RBI has responded to an RTI petition seeking about the Aadhaar Bank Linkage. According to the Reserve Bank Of India’s response, RBI has not given any official order to the banks about the Aadhar card tie-up, and it is the decision of Central Government alone.

In the response made by the RBI, it stated that “The Government has issued a Gazette Notification GSR 538(E) dated 1 June 2017 regarding Prevention of Money laundering (Maintenance of Records) Second Amendment Rules, 2017, inter-alia, making furnishing of Aadhaar (for those individuals who are eligible to be enrolled for Aadhaar) and permanent number (PAN) mandatory for opening a bank account.

Aadhaar, PAN Card linking deadline nears: Check out Simple Steps to Link PAN & Aadhaar

Aadhaar, PAN Card linking

After the demonization move by our Prime Minister Narendra Modi to curb black money, the government made it mandatory for all the citizens in India to link Aadhaar card number and Permanent Account Number (PAN). The linking is made compulsory to provide Aadhaar and PAN details while filing tax returns by August 31st.

The government has already extended the deadline twice, from July 31 to August 5, and then later to August 31.Now it seems that no further extension of the deadline will be possible. The Aadhaar-PAN linking is aimed at tax evaders who hold multiple PAN cards to escape tax paying.

By linking, you no longer need to submit Income Tax acknowledgment to I-T department.

Birth certificate not mandatory for passport: Aadhaar, PAN Valid DOB proof

“The returns will not be processed until the linkage of Aadhaar with PAN is done,” Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has already said this.

Recently, government deactivates 11.44 lakh PAN cards after identifying a huge number of fake PAN cards. As per government rules, a person should not have more than one PAN number.The government believes that the linking of Aadhaar and PAN is an effective anti-evasion measure to fight black money, corruption and will further help in streamlining the entire tax filing process.
