An issue has raised by our visitors whether a person can hold more than one pancard of different pan numbers. No, one person can not hold two or more pancards of different numbers. It means a person can have only one unique PAN No. which is known as Permanent Account Number which is issued by the Income-tax Department of Govt. of India. एक व्यक्ति दो अलग नंबर के दो पेनकार्ड नहीं रख सकता है .
More ever, keeping and having more than one PAN Number / Permanent Account Number, is a punishable offence and for this offence, penalty of Rs. 10,000/- and/or 6 months imprisonment may be imposed. Therefore one person should not keep and maintain more than one pancard. दो अलग अलग नंबर के दो पेनकार्ड रखना दंडनीय अपराध है .
If a person is having two or more PAN Numbers, he/she is advised that he/she should surrender and get cancelled EXTRA PANCARD. Surrender of extra pan number can be made online through www.statuspan.in even without surrendering / sending the extra pan card but such pancard should be destroyed / scrapped after getting it cancelled / surrendered. यदि किसी के पास दो अलग अलग नंबर के दो पेनकार्ड है तो उसे एक पेन नंबर को www.statuspan.in के मार्फ़त तत्काल सरेंडर कर देना चाहिए .
