Is your PAN Card Activated?

Government of India had asked for linking of Aadhar Card to PAN Card and after the exercise was done there were about 1.1 million PAN Card which were made unactive. The PAN Card were of Individuals or Firms (Not Private Limited Company or LLP).

If you are wondering whether your PAN Card is still active, you can find out yourself in 4 simple steps:

Step 1: Go to the Income Tax Department's e-filing website (

Step 2: Once you reach Income Tax Website, Look into Left side panel under category ‘Service’ wherein you will get click on the 'Know Your Pan' option. This opens to a page where you need to fill in you details. For instance, name, status (Company, Individual, Hindu Undivided Family), gender, date of birth and phone number

Step 3: Confirm the details are correct and then click the submit button

Step 4: You will receive an OTP or one-time password on your mobile. Enter the number in the given space to 'Validate.'

If your PAN Card is OK, in next page you will see a message your PAN is 'Active' and you can also see the jurisdiction under which the PAN is active. For instance, WARD 5(1) Patna.

Hope this helps you to get the status of your peace of mind and know whether your PAN Card is active or not. Infact even if you have a Private Limited Company or Limited Liability Company (LLP), you can check the status of your PAN Card.
