New rule of FASTag-
First of all, let's talk about Fastag. There is going to be a big change related to Fastag from April 1. If you have not updated the KYC of your car's Fastag from the bank, then you may face problems from April 1. If you have not got your Fastag KYC done then get it done today itself, because after March 31, banks will deactivate or blacklist Fastags without KYC. After this, payment will not be made despite having a balance in Fastag. You will have to pay double toll tax on toll. Let us tell you that NHAI has asked Fastag customers to complete the KYC process for Fastag as per RBI rules.

Changes in the NPS system -
There is going to be a change in NPS i.e. National Pension System in the new financial year. From the month of April, the pension fund regulator i.e. PFRDA has decided to make changes in the existing login process of the National Pension System. The new rule will come into effect on April 1, 2024. Under the new rule, two verifications i.e. two-factor authentication will be required to log in to the NPS account. NPS subscribers will have to log in through Aadhaar verification and OTP received on mobile. This has been done to make the system more secure.

Deadline for linking PAN with Aadhaar -
The deadline for linking PAN with Aadhaar has been extended several times. The last date for linking a PAN card with an Aadhar card is 31 March 2024. Even after this, if someone does not follow the rules i.e. does not link PAN with Aadhaar, then his PAN number will be cancelled. Cancellation of a PAN card means that you will neither be able to open a bank account nor do any major transactions. You may also have to pay a fine of Rs 1000 as a late payment for activating PAN.

New rule of EPFO -
There is going to be a big change in EPFO in the new financial year. Employees Provident Fund Organization is going to implement new rules from April 1.
