Dear Sir/Madam,
 
Greetings from Principal Mutual Fund!
 
Trust you and your family are safe and healthy in these challenging times.
 
At the outset, we thank you for having chosen to invest in Principle Mutual Fund.
 
As you may be aware, linking of PAN with Aadhaar has been made mandatory as per Section 139 AA of the Income Tax Act 1961 and accordingly, all PANs should be linked with the Aadhaar latest by 30th September 2021, else the PAN will become inoperative.
 
We request you to kindly link your PAN with Aadhaar of all the unit holders in your folio by visiting the Income-tax website. In the event of failure to do so, there would be restrictions on executing certain type of transactions and also the TDS rate on dividend/redemption amounts (if applicable) will be twice the normal rate, as per the requirements laid down under Income Tax Act. Hence, in order to have a seamless transacting experience and to avoid levy of higher TDS on the dividends/redemptions (if applicable) effective from 1st October 2021, we request you to link the same before the above mentioned date.
 
To check the status of the linkage of your PAN with Aadhaar you can;
    (ii) SMS to 567678 or 56161 in the following format UIDPAN<12 digit Aadhaar><10 digit PAN>. Example of SMS to 567678 or 56161: UIDPAN 111122223333 AAAPA9999Q.
