Government has set a deadline for bank account holders to provide their PAN details
The government of India has sent a deadline date for banks to get PAN details of all their accounts holders, which is currently set for February 28. One of the main reasons this, a source close to the government says, is to curb the number of black money holders and the amount of black money in the economy. Experts are of the opinion that making PAN details mandatory brings about a lot of accountability to the system, which would help catch hold of tax evaders and illicit money holders. Also, the government has offered an alternative to those who don’t have a PAN card, wherein the government has said that people can provide Form 60. A statement submitted by the government also states the same and also adds that this rule isn’t applicable only for Basic Savings Bank Deposit Accounts. It is also being said that the government has had to make major legislative changes so as to pave the way to make this system work.
