As we are about to enter a new financial year in just two days, there are some money related tasks that individuals need to finish it by March 31, 2023. These ranges from planning taxes to filing updated income tax return (ITR) to investing in debt funds to avail taxation benefits to buying a high-value life insurance policy. However, the government has extended some of the deadlines. 

The deadline for PAN-Aadhaar linking, demat and mutual fund nominations was March 31, 2023, but they were extended.

Last date to linking PAN-Aadhaar extended

The date for linking Permanent Account Number (PAN) and Aadhaar has been extended from March 31 to June 30 this year.

"The PAN can be made operative again in 30 days, upon intimation of Aadhaar to the prescribed authority after payment of fee of 1,000," the release said.
