Want to download e-PAN Card? Check step-by-step guide


New Delhi: Along with the Aadhaar Card, one of the most important documents for any Indian resident is the PAN Card, which is accepted as a valid proof at a variety of sites. A PAN is especially important for salaried employees because it is required to file the Income Tax Return (ITR).

When creating a bank account or a demat account, the authority would additionally want a valid PAN or a copy of it. Banks, on the other hand, require PAN when an individual deposits more than Rs 50,000 in a single transaction into a bank account.

It is also necessary since the government keeps track of the financial transactions of residents who use the PAN card. However, it is not always possible to supply the physical card. This is when an e-PAN can come in handy, lowering the danger of losing the card.
