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 valid proof at various sites. A PAN is particularly important for salaried employees as it is required to file the income tax return (ITR).
When setting up a bank account or demat account, the authority would additionally want a valid PAN or a copy of it. Banks, on the other hand, require a 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 tracks the financial transactions of residents who use the PAN card. However, it is not always possible to provide the physical card. This is when an e-PAN can come in handy, reducing the risk of losing the card.
