If you had not linked your permanent account number (PAN) with your Aadhaar by July 30, 2023 then your PAN must have been classified as ‘inoperative’. You can link your PAN with your Aadhaar online by paying a late fee of Rs 1,000.

However, many individuals are not able to link their PAN and Aadhaar online due to some reasons such as different dates of birth in PAN and Aadhaar. In such cases, they have to visit either the Aadhaar enrolment centre to update the Aadhaar or go to a PAN service centre to update the PAN.
