Technical Error At UIDAI On Deadline To Link Aadhar To PAN

After the government made it mandatory to link the Aadhaar Card and PAN card details online, there has been a crazy rush on the Income Tax website to complete the compliance by 30th June.  This has led to slow processing and crashing of the server on When an attempt is made to link the two cards, an error with the following message flashes on the screen “Technical Error at UIDAI. Please try again”. This has been a cause of concern for many people in the past few days who are trying to link the two cards.

Many people are interpreting that “if they don’t link the Aadhaar and PAN card details by 30th June, their PAN will become invalid”. This is not true, the linking of two cards is mandatory from 1st July on every return filing but there is no such notification from the government that the PAN card would immediately become invalid. The government has not given any deadline date yet to make the PAN card invalid. In the coming days, the government may roll out a deadline date to link the Aadhaar and PAN card. Upon failure to link the cards by the date specified by the government, your PAN will become invalid. The department till now has linked more than 2 crore Aadhaar numbers with the PAN.
