OUR COMMENTS

Not only linking of PAN with Aadhar is mandatory but it is also necessary to link Aadhar with GSTN. SEBI has also made mandatory for its investors to link PAN with Aadhar upto 31.03.2023 for continual and smooth processing of transactions. Banks also cannot do KYC of its customers with inoperative PAN. It is therefore requested to get your Aadhar linked with PAN. This step is taken by Government to avoid practice of dual PAN and track major transactions with Aadhar and PAN so that tax evasion can be reduced. Financial Tree Company helps in linking PAN with Aadhar and other supporting services.
