Yes. If an applicant is having only a mother as a single parent and wishes to apply for PAN by furnishing the name of mother only, then the applicant has to mandatorily tick the relevant box in the application form and mention only mother’s name in the Mother’s Name field. Also, the applicant should tick the box for printing mother’s name on the PAN card. Thus, in such a case, the father’s name should not be filled in the application form.
