You need to link their Aadhaar and PAN on the Income Tax Department website by the stipulated date to conduct higher value transactions.
LPG Cooking Gas Prices
With the price of LPG cooking rising for two consecutive months in a row, it is expected that the gas may once again rise in September. In August 18, LPG price was increased by Rs 25 per cylinder s whereas it was hiked by Rs25.50 in July.
It is another significant change that will impact the PF amount credited in your account. From September onwards, if your UAN (Universal Account Number) and Aadhaar card are not liked then your employer will not be able to credit any money to your provident fund (PF) account. To order to implement it, the Employees’ Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) recently revised Section 142 of the Code of Social Security 2020. So make sure that both are seeded in order to enjoy the benefits of your retirement fund.
