As investors in the Indian stock market, it is important to be aware of the latest regulations and guidelines set by the National Stock Exchange of India (NSE). In a recent advisory, the NSE has advised all investors to link their Permanent Address Number (PAN) with their Aadhaar number by March 31, 2023. This is to ensure that transactions in the stock market are seamless and uninterrupted.
In 2017, the Indian government announced that it would be mandatory to link PAN with Aadhaar for all transactions in the stock market. The deadline for linking PAN with Aadhaar has been extended several times in the past, but the expectation of an extension this time around is low.
PAN is the primary identification number for transactions in the stock market, making it crucial for investors to ensure that their PAN card is linked with their Aadhaar number. Failure to link the two before the deadline of March 31, 2023, may result in the suspension of your trading account. The NSE has warned that if an investor has not linked their PAN card with Aadhaar by the end of March, they will not be able to make new deals or even close open positions.
To link your Aadhaar card with PAN, follow these simple steps:
Login or register yourself
Click on 'Link Aadhaar'
Fill in the necessary details and submit
The Income Tax Department will start the process of linking your PAN and Aadhaar.
In case you want to manually link your PAN with Aadhaar, you can visit a PAN service center and fill out the Annexure-I form. You will also need to provide a copy of your PAN card and Aadhaar card and pay a fee of Rs 110 for any corrections to PAN data, or Rs 50 for updating Aadhaar details. Biometric authentication may be required if there is a significant discrepancy between PAN and Aadhaar data.
To check if your PAN and Aadhaar are already linked, you can visit the income tax e-filing website www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in and log in to your account. If the two are linked, your Aadhaar number will be partially displayed in your profile. You can also send an SMS to NSDL e-Governance Infrastructure Limited or UTI Infrastructure Technology and Services Limited, which are PAN service providers, to link your PAN and Aadhaar. Simply text a keyword to 567678 or 56161 in the format UIDPAN>12 digit Aadhaar>10 digit PAN> to link the two.
It is important for investors to take this advisory seriously and link their PAN with Aadhaar by March 31, 2023, to avoid any disruptions to their trading activities.
