What Happens if You Don’t Link PAN-Aadhaar by March 31, 2023?

An inoperative PAN will also lead to a number of consequences like not being able to file tax return, pending returns and refunds not being processed, tax deductions at a higher rate and many others. Furnishing an invalid PAN can also attract fines of Rs 10,000 as per law.
