Actually, if you do not link PAN and Aadhaar by September 30, then your PAN will become inactive, due to which you will not be able to do bank work. Because your KYC in the bank will be invalid. Know one more important thing, if PAN becomes inactive, you will also have to face fine. You will also need a PAN to buy gold above Rs 5 lakh. According to the new rules, it is forbidden to use invalid or inactive PAN, rather it will come under the category of crime.
