Deadline for Aadhaar-welfare schemes linking extended till June 30

Deadline for Aadhaar-welfare schemes linking extended till June 30”

Deadline to link PAN- Aadhaar: The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has extended Aadhaar-PAN linking deadline from the current last date of March 31 to June 30, 2018.

The government on Wednesday extended by three months to June 30 the deadline for linking of Aadhaar with welfare schemes, where the benefits are funded from the Consolidated Fund of India.

It may be recalled that on December 15, 2017, the Apex Court had extended the deadline for mandatory linking of Aadhaar with various services and welfare schemes till March 31, 2018.

At a previous hearing, a five-judge constitution bench, headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra, indefinitely extended the deadline to link bank accounts and mobile phones with Aadhaar till the conclusion of the hearing. Making Aadhaar linking compulsory for bank accounts and welfare schemes had stirred a controversy with many political parties opposing it.

The extension comes at a time when a Constitution bench of the Supreme Court is hearing a challenge to the constitutionality of Aadhaar.

Yesterday, Pandey concluded his presentation in the Supreme Court to defend the governments ambitious Aadhaar scheme.

Pandey said that UIDAI is extremely serious about data protection, and added that Aadhaar is governed by strong laws that prevent data misuse or any breach into the Aadhaar system.

The petition cited the provision of section 139AA of the Income Tax Act (1961), which makes the linking of PAN with Aadhaar mandatory to curb tax evasion, weed out multiple PAN cards and track fraudulent financial transactions. "We are constantly on vigil", UIDAI CEO, Ajay Bhushan Pandey, told reporters on the sidelines of GSTN Foundation Day. While it is enabling the people, it is also enabling the other side who do not have good intentions.
