Much to the respite of tax-filers of the country the government of India, on Thursday, extended the last linking date of PAN and Aadhaar numbers till December 31 of this year. It may be mentioned that Income Tax authorities had clarified that without linking of Aadhaar and PAN numbers, the ITR can be filed but will not be processed. On the whole, there appears to be confusion amongst different government agencies as to what the deadline should be and what purpose it would serve.
