11.5 cr PAN cards deactivated for not linking with Aadhaar: How to reactivate
A Right to Information (RTI) response from the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has revealed that a total of 11.5 crore PAN cards were deactivated for failing to be linked with Aadhaar cards by the June 30 deadline.
India has 70.24 crore PAN card holders, of which 57.25 crore have successfully linked their PAN cards with Aadhaar. More than 12 crore PAN cards remain unlinked, with 11.5 crore facing deactivation due to non-compliance, said reports last week. The RTI was filed by Madhya Pradesh activist Chandra Shekhar Gaur.
