After July 1, the linking will become mandatory and the government may declare a date after which the PAN not linked to Aadhaar will become invalid. The government has not declared that date yet.

The Bench of Justice A.K. Sikri and Justice Ashok Bhushan on Friday, i.e 9th June’17, up held the Section 139AA subject to the final verdict on the privacy issues which is pending before the constitution bench.
