Updating Your Mobile Number in Your PF Account: A Step-by-Step Guide

In the digital age, the value of mobile technology has grown significantly, particularly in the context of banking and finance. With mobile devices, you receive instant notifications via email or SMS for any transactions in your account, allowing you to take immediate action to stop any unauthorized activity.

Not only do you get banking alerts on your phone, but you also receive important updates regarding your pension or Provident Fund (PF) accounts. For members of the Employees Provident Fund Organization (EPFO), it is crucial to keep the phone number linked to your PF account active.

Additionally, you won't be able to make changes to your account on your own. To update your PF account with a new number, you must first ensure your phone number is current. Fortunately, this can be done from the comfort of your home.

Link PAN with Aadhaar to avoid TDS Penalties – Here's How-to do it

The Income Tax Department has extended the deadline for imposing penalties on taxpayers who missed linking their Permanent Account Number (PAN) with their Aadhaar Number by the June 30, 2023 deadline. Additionally, the department announced that no action will be taken regarding short deductions of Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) if taxpayers link their PAN and Aadhaar by May 31. This extension provides relief to those who missed the original deadline.

According to income tax regulations, taxpayers must link their biometric Aadhaar number to their PAN; failure to do so results in TDS being withheld at double the relevant rate.

The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) stated in a circular dated April 24: "Taxpayers have lodged several grievances stating that they received notices indicating non-compliance with the 'short-deduction/collection' requirements of TDS/TCS during transactions where the PANs of the deductees/collectees were non-functional." In some cases, the department has initiated claims against deductors/collectors during the processing of TDS/TCS statements because the deduction or collection was not done at a higher rate.

The CBDT announced that for transactions conducted up to March 31, 2024, and where the PAN becomes operative (due to linkage with Aadhaar) on or before May 31, 2024, deductors/collectors will not be liable to deduct/collect tax at a higher rate. This measure addresses the complaints made by such deductors/collectors.

If You Fail To Link Your With Your Aadhaar - Know the Consequences

  • Your PAN will stop working.
  • Interest on outstanding tax refunds will not be paid out.
  • A greater rate of TDS deduction will be necessary.
  • TCS will need to be collected at high interest.
Steps to link PAN with Aadhaar Number:-

  • Visit to access the Income Tax Department’s website.
  • Under the “Quick Links” section, select the “Link Aadhaar” option.
  • After entering your Aadhaar and PAN, select “Validate.”
  • After entering your cellphone number and name as it appears on your Aadhaar card, select “Link Aadhaar.”
  • After entering the OTP that was sent to your mobile device, select “Validate.”

Google Latest Android Features get these updates

Google unveiled seven new Android features for various applications like Meet, Home, Messages, and Wear OS. A standout among these updates is the capability to edit RCS messages within 15 minutes after sending them. Unlike previous announcements at Google I/O 2024, where certain features were exclusive to Pixel smartphones, these additions are anticipated to be accessible across a wide range of Android devices and regions. However, availability of some features may be subject to regional limitations.

RCS Messaging :-

Google recently revealed in a blog post that it's introducing a feature allowing users to edit RCS messages up to 15 minutes after sending them. This functionality will be accessible through Google Messages, the company's text messaging application.

To edit a message, users can tap and hold on a sent RCS message, triggering the appearance of a new edit icon on the top banner. By tapping on this icon, users can modify their message, provided it was sent within the last 15 minutes, as specified by the company.

Device Switching & Hotspot Instantly :-

Google has announced upcoming features, including an 'instant hotspot' capability that allows users to connect a tablet or Chromebook to an Android smartphone's hotspot without manual password entry. Additionally, an update to Cross-Device Services will facilitate seamless switching between devices like smartphones, web browsers, or tablets during video calls.

Moreover, Android smartphones can now function as digital car keys, offering lock/unlock and vehicle start functionalities. Initially available for select MINI models, this feature will soon extend to Mercedes-Benz and Polestar vehicles.

Furthermore, users can control their smart devices via the Google Home Favorites widget on Android smartphones and the Google Home Favorites tile and complication on WearOS-powered
