How to Apply for PAN Card Online

Permanent Account Number or PAN is a ten-digit alphanumeric number issued by the Income Tax Department; it stores all the financial transactions of an individual. Every taxable individual is assigned a unique PAN number through which he is allowed to pay taxes and file Income Tax Returns. The introduction of PAN was originated by the Indian Government in the year 1972. When introduced, having a PAN Card was voluntary for individuals but with passing time, Section 139A of the Income Tax Act made it mandatory for taxpayers. At the earlier stages, PAN Card was issued to the taxable individuals by the Government but with an increase in a number of taxable individuals, it became problematic for the Government to keep a track manually. PAN Card is not merely an important tax factor but a necessary ID proof. Hence, the Income Tax Department of India has made a hassle-free and convenient way for the taxpayers to apply for PAN Card online.
