What is PAN Card

A Permanent Account Number (PAN) is a ten-character alphanumeric identifier, issued by the Indian Income Tax Department, to any "person" who applies for it. PAN is a mandatory form of identification for filing Income Tax returns, making certain transactions, and for any other purpose as specified by the Income Tax Act, 1961. It is issued in the form of a laminated card, known as the PAN Card. The PAN Card contains the PAN number, the name of the holder, his/her photograph, and the date of birth.
