  • Maneka Gandhi writes to Finance Ministry asking them to drop father’s name from PAN form

    Union Women and Child Development Minister Maneka Gandhi has written to Piyush Goel, her counterpart in the Finance Ministry asking the government to re-examine the application form for availing PAN. The request has been made by the minister because her ministry wants children of divorced or separated women as well as those adopted by single mothers be given the option of writing their father’s name rather than providing it mandatorily. Gandhi in her letter stated that the government must look at providing an option to the single women of not having to mention the names of their ex-husbands on the application forms, that needs to be submitted to government authorities. She added that the request made needs to be looked at as her ministry is giving priority to the adoption of children by single mothers. It needs to be mentioned that the government in 2016 had amended existing passport rules to facilitate single mothers. At that time, the ministry of external affairs removed the rule of single mothers needing to provide the ex-husbands’ signature as well as a no-objection certificate for availing the passport of their children.
