In case, the taxpayer fails to provide Aadhaar number to Income-tax department, the PAN allotted to the taxpayer shall be considered invalid and the taxpayer will be treated as non-PAN holder.
This may lead to one of the following outcomes:
- TDS will be deducted at 20% or the applicable rate (whichever is more) instead of normal TDS rate.
- A penalty of Rs. 10,000 may be imposed on the taxpayer for not holding PAN.
