The Central government on Friday on extended the deadline to link Aadhar with PAN from December 31, 2017 to March 31, 2018. The Supreme Court on Thursday was informed by the Centre about the extension of the last date with Attorney General K K Venugopal telling a bench comprising Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud that the government will come out with a notification to this effect on December 8.

The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) on Thursday, however, had denied reports of extension in deadline for linking Aadhaar to various schemes and issued a press release stating, “People should instead verify their bank accounts, investment accounts, SIM cards, etc. as per the current laws and deadlines as early as possible to avoid any inconvenience.” Confirming that most of the schemes and services, deadline to link Aadhaar remains December 31, the release added, “All notifications for requiring Aadhaar for various welfare programmes, verifying bank account, PAN card and SIM card with Aadhaar stand valid and lawful.” The authority has also advised people not to get misled by an outdated video, which was widely being circulated on WhatsApp and social media platforms.
