Though PAN is a number, the PAN Card is a physical card that contains details such as your PAN, name, date of birth, a photograph and the name of your father. The card holds good as proof of identity or for date of birth.

The concept of PAN was introduced by the government of India in 1972 and made statutory under section 139 A of the Income Tax Act w.e.f. 1st April 1976. Section 139A of the Income Tax Act, 1961, lays down various conditions under which you are required to obtain a PAN. You are required to mention your PAN in all communications with the Income Tax Department and while entering into specified financial transactions8. If you do not already have a PAN card, you can apply for one or can apply for a duplicate PAN if you have lost your existing card.
