How to fill PAN (Permanent Account Number) form in India?

Updated on May 29, 2017

Permanent Account Number or PAN is a mandatory alphanumeric number for people who file income tax and make transactions of Rs.50,000/- and up (like deposits in a bank or Post Office).

The rule was made mandatory on 2005 and since then, filing income tax and keeping the track of it has become easier by quoting this number. People need to have this number if they want to use financial services of Government or some private service where the transaction equals or exceeds Rs.50,000/-.

The form is very simple and easy to fill up. It is known as Application Form No. 49A with respect to PAN Application.

Though the form is simple, I have seen many people get apprehension from it because it is a Government form and the information cannot be incorrect.

They think that they will mess up the information and they will be charged for it and that is why they don’t fill the form or wait for an expert to do it.

The issuance of PAN causes delay and resources from Government’s side and that is why, it is very important to fill the form in correct order and with correct information to the best knowledge of applicant.

Here I would be using an alias to fill the form so that not only I would be able to explain all the fields but also, I would be able to show you how and where the information is filled.
