    Apply PAN Card Online

    PAN was introduced to facilitate linking of various documents, facilitate payment of taxes, assessment, tax demand, recovery of tax arrears, etc. relating to a person, and to facilitate easy retrieval and cross confirmation of information relating to investment, raising of loans, and other business activities of taxpayers collected through various sources. PAN, thus, acts as an identifier for the “person” with the Income-tax department.
