Online PAN Application

Permanent Account Number (PAN) is a ten-digit alphanumeric number, issued in the form of a laminated card, by the Income Tax Department, to any ˜person˜ who applies for it or to whom the department allots the number without an application.
PAN enables the department to link all transactions of the ˜person˜ with the department. These transactions include tax payments, TDS/TCS credits, returns of income/wealth/gift/FBT, specified transactions, correspondence, and so on. PAN, thus, acts as an identifier for the ˜person˜ with the tax department.
