The Aadhaar Card is a widely-accepted identity and address proof document for all kinds of financial and non-financial services. Similarly, you also require your Permanent Account Number (PAN) to avail of most financial services. Per Government rules, you must link Aadhaar to PAN Card to enjoy seamless financial services.
Per Government directives, all PAN and Aadhaar cardholders must complete the pan and Aadhaar link by 31 March 2022. Failure to link the documents within the stipulated timeline may result in your PAN being classified as “Inoperative”. The Government will further deem that you have not declared your PAN card detail.
We at digibank urge you to link PAN with Aadhaar at the earliest to enjoy seamless and uninterrupted financial services.
