Indian Twitter is abuzz with hilarious reactions and memes as people face technical snags to link their PAN card with Aadhaar on the last date set by the government.
According to Finance Bill 2021, people might be liable to a penalty of Rs 1,000 in case of non-linking of PAN and Aadhaar, after March 31, 2021.
Also if the citizens fail to link their Aadhaar cards by the set deadline, their PAN card is likely to become invalid.
As the deadline approached, people who wanted to avoid the penalty, rushed to link their PAN with the Aadhaar card only to find the server down the whole time. This has evoked a lot of reactions with many people reacting with hilarious memes.
[UPDATE: The Central government on Wednesday extended the last date from March 31 to June 30, 2021 in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and difficulties faced by the people.]
