PAN Card Holders Could Be Fined For INR 10,000 Over This Mistake


PAN cardholders could be fined for a sum of 10,000 over a simple mistake of having a secondary PAN card. Yes! if you’re a PAN card holder with not one but two PAN cards, its time to surrender your secondary PAN card to else, you’ll be in bigtime trouble.

Now, the Income Tax Department of India is the responsible body for the issuance of a PAN card. Its primarily used as an Identification and also for filing your ITR.

The PAN that you require to cancel should be mentioned with other relevant information. Afterwhich, submit the application and voila! you’re done.

Now, the PAN is a unique identification for all your transactions and it helps in the process of banking and maintaining records as well.

In some cases, where an individual has two PAN cards then the actual information can be mismanaged and a data malfunction would occur.

Also, there are cases where individuals have two PAN’s because they need a different set of PAN cards for filing ITR and for Demat accounts. In such cases, cancel the card that you use for filing ITR, as it deems unnecessary.

The other command reason is that individuals would rather get a new PAN card instead of applying for a reprint copy of the old one, in case their PAN card is lost.

So, if you have two PAN cards or if you know someone who has two PAN cards, then cancel yours or notify the required person as soon as possible.
