Know Your Pan

India is a densely populated and highly diverse country, characterized by a multitude of castes, creeds, religions, cultures, and various societal parameters. To sustain an effective government, every Indian citizen is required to contribute a portion of their income in the form of taxes. This financial contribution ensures the smooth functioning of the government, fostering proper law and order in the country. Recognizing these dynamics, the Government of India introduced the concept of PAN (Permanent Account Number) in 1972, making it a mandatory document under section 139A of the Income Tax Act of 1961.

In the past, maintaining important documents posed significant challenges, and losing any document was a cumbersome ordeal. However, with the advent of digital advancements, the Income Tax department can now effortlessly provide individuals with essential PAN card information. In case of a lost PAN card, the department is also equipped to issue a duplicate copy, eliminating the hassles associated with document maintenance.
