PAN is a ten-digit identification number assigned to each individual who applies for it, and it was created to track taxable financial activities. The PAN card acts as identification and aids in the detection of tax evasion. Individuals and organizations like banks, corporations, and other commercial entities can check an individual’s PAN data with the income tax department. This not only aids in the verification of PAN information but also in determining whether the PAN card is a forgery.

Individuals can use the PAN verification service, which is available on the IT department’s official e-filing page, to check the legitimacy of their PAN card. It would be helpful if you could recall your PAN to use this function. Here’s how you can take advantage of the facility.
