  1. My name is Md kasif on my Adhar card. I applied for pan card and as initials are not accepted I wrote Mohd Kasif. My pan card got rejected and they said to write only Kasif in last name I again applied for pan card as per their suggestion but again my pan card rejects. Now what should I do?????

    1. Dear Kasif,

      It is all right because your name should exactly match with ID Proof (Aadhaar) and initial is also not allowed. In your name MD is initial and therefore, your both applications were rejected.

      Now, you are advised to get updated/corrected your Aadhaar data with full name and there after, you should apply for pancard. You can alsu use other ID proof or Bank Certificate etc. instead of Aadhaar if other ID contain complete name. You can apply with Election Card and DOB proof. You should apply online in future through pancard.org.in for good support and guidance – pancard.org.in

      1. But sir I got reply from Pan Card authority to apply again with only Kasif as last name. What is my mistake as I was following their instructions.

  2. Sir. I have got my pan card with intial nly. Hwever i got my father name in elaborated form in pan card. in all other proofs my father name is not elaborated. Will passport officers accept that
