Why is it necessary to link PAN-Aadhaar?
PAN is mandatory for many financial transactions including opening a bank account, depositing cash in a bank account, opening a demat account, dealing in immovable properties and dealing in securities. PAN card is also a means of photo identification accepted by all government and non-government institutions in the country.
This is being done because Aadhaar is biometric based and cannot be obtained on the basis of any other identification document, so it is imperative for the administration to link the two.
