Aadhaar Watch: Railway ticket concession, Delhi e-rickshaw and more


Govt amends Income Tax rule to make it mandatory to link Aadhaar with PAN Government of India has amended Rule 114 of the Income Tax Act, which address application for allotment of Permanent Account Numbers (PAN), to make linking Aadhaar with PAN mandatory.
