PAN Card – Have Got you Covered
PAN Card – Who are You?
Permanent Account Number or PAN is a 10-digit numeric code which stores information of all the financial transactions. Every tax-payer in India is assigned a PAN through which he/she can file Income Tax and pay taxes. The concept of PAN was introduced by the Government of India in 1972. At first, this system of PAN Card was voluntary, but as the time passed it was made compulsory for every tax-payer under section 139A of the Income-Tax Act. The process of PAN card application can be done using both offline and online means. The offline application process takes place at any PAN agencies whereas online application is done at the NSDL website. The ‘Form 49A’ is available online and after submitting this form, the applicant receives his/her Pan card.
