When you file income tax returns, one mandatory number for you to quote in all your correspondence with Income Tax Authority is the PAN or Permanent Account Number. It is important for all the citizens of India to have a PAN Card.
This is a ten digit alphanumeric number which is unique and is issued by the Income Tax Department. It is written on a laminated card, for instance, AABPS3406E. First five characters are letters, next 4 are numerals and last character is a letter.
PAN Card is issued under Section 139A of Income Tax Act
. From January 1, 2005, it is essential to quote PAN Number in documents related to financial transactions. Such transactions may comprise of sale/purchase of immovable property, payment made in cash of amount exceeding Rs 25,000 to hotels, application for procuring telephone connection and depositing more than Rs 50,000 in Bank etc. However, it may be noted that a person cannot have more than one PAN Number as it is against the law.
The UTI Investor Services Limited (UTIISL) has been authorized by the Income Tax Department to supervise IT PAN Service Centres in all cities/towns with Income Tax Office. The National Securities Depository Limited (NSDL) deals with PAN Services from TIN Facilitation Centres.
