News Related to PAN Card Status

  • Paying Tax with Aadhaar card will enable you to get a fresh PAN Card

    During the Union Budget 2019, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman proposed that the Biometric ID is adequate to file your Income Tax returns. In lieu of this, the chief of the Central Board of Direct Taxes, Pramod Chandra Mody mentioned that a fresh PAN card will be issued to the person who files his or her tax returns only with their Aadhaar Card.

    This is a part of the new arrangement which will link the two databases of PAN card and Aadhaar card.

    Mr. Mody has mentioned that the only reason why Aadhaar has been allotted as a medium to file taxes is to link the two bases and this does not mean that the PAN card holds less importance considering recent events. It is an additional facility of filing taxes for the taxpayer who does not hold a PAN card.

    The accessing officer of the department will allot the PAN card to the person who has filed his or her taxes with the Aadhaar card. If the Aadhaar is provided without the PAN while filing taxes, the department issues the PAN and the two databases will be linked automatically.

    On the back of demonetisation and its subsequent drop in sales, GJF has come together to urge the government to increase the PAN limit from Rs.2 lakh to Rs.5 lakh.

    During the first week after currency demonetisation, the central government had announced that any jewellery purchase of more than Rs.2 lakh should be completed through a PAN Card.

    Besides this, the federation has also urged the government to cut the import duty by at least 5% during the 2017-18 budget.

    Nitin Khandelwal, Chairman of GJF has said that the implementation of PAN card has directly hit the jewellery sales in the country. He suggested that business which was growing at 2% each year has slowed down considerably. Also, he continued saying that, a high interest rate of 10%on imports is further hindering growth of the industry.

    He further said that the government should keep GST at 1.25% for the industry so that it can organise itself well.
