In case, you fail to do that by 30th June 2020, your PAN card will become inoperative after 30th June 2020, says CBDT's latest communication in this regard.
The CBDT had send reprimand to around 17 crore PAN Card holders few month ago asking them to do the PAN Aadhaar link on an urgent basis otherwise they will have no other option but to make their PAN Card inoperative. It also said that one can link one's PAN Aadhaar both offline and online. Following the CBDT guidelines, a good number of people had done their PAN Aadhaar link before the Coronavirus lockdown announcement. But, only linking of PAN Aadhaar may not be enough as it may get rejected due to some irregularity while doing the PAN Aadhaar Link. So, one needs to keep checking the PAN Aadhaar link status. As per the official website of the income Tax Department — incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in — one can do PAN Aadhaar link status check through SMS by sending a text message at 567678 or 56161.
