Govt deactivates 11 lakh PAN cards Here's how to check yours

The process of detecting and deleting the PAN card took place right after when the Government of India has made the 12-digit biometric Aadhaar or the enrolment ID a must source at the time of application of PAN. Wondering if your PAN card is deactivated or not?

So now that lakhs of PAN cards have been deactivated, here's a step-by-step guide on how you can check if your PAN card is active. But the Aadhaar-PAN linking revealed some shocking facts. Further, seeding of Aadhaar will allow the income tax department to weed out any undetected duplicate PANs. As per the government norms it is not legal to have multiple PAN accounts for an Individual and also the fake accounts are deactivated.

In a move aimed at weeding out illegal financial dealings, the government has deleted or de-activated more than 11.44 lakh permanent account numbers (PANs) as of 27 July in cases where multiple numbers were found allotted to one person.

Log on to the official IT filing website, www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in and then click on 'Know your PAN' tab. They placed it in the left-hand column with the name "Services".

But all this news created a confusion among the PAN Card holders. If your PAN card is not duplicate or fake it shows "Active" statement. You will know the status based on a one-time password that will be sent to your registered mobile.

"Linkage of Aadhaar number into PAN database will allow a robust way of de-duplication as Aadhaar number is based on biometric attributes of fingerprints and iris images". Soon after filling the details, press on the "Submit" button. After which you will be directed to a new page to notify you about the validity of the PAN card.

If you owning multiple PAN cards, a notice will pop up - "There are multiple records for the query".

Now you will direct to next page, and you need to provide information such as your name, status, date of birth and mobile number.
