The permanent account number, or PAN, given by the country's income tax agency, is one of the most crucial papers that a person holds. The 10-digit alphanumeric number is required for an individual to have if he or she wants to conduct financial activities that exceed defined restrictions, such as purchasing mutual funds.
The card, which also acts as identification, aids the government in preventing tax evasion. In this section, we will look at several features of the PAN card acknowledgment number that you may be interested in.
The PAN card acknowledgment number is a number given to a person when they apply for a PAN card through NSDL, UTI, or e-Mudra. When using NSDL, the entity generates a 15-digit PAN acknowledgment number, whereas UTIITSL generates a 9-digit application coupon number. Individuals can follow the status of their PAN application by dialing the official number.
The acknowledgment number may be found on the PAN acknowledgment slip or PAN acknowledgment form supplied to anybody who asks for a new PAN card or requests a modification to an existing PAN card.
After submitting an online application, an acknowledgment slip is emailed to the email address specified in the application form. If applying offline, the agent who receives the form provides the applicant with the PAN card acknowledgment number upon receipt of the application.
