In India PAN Card is becoming an important document day by day. It is a compulsory document / I D Proof for many purpose but it is an incomplete document as it does not bear the address of the PAN Card holder. Now the question arises is why address of the PAN Card holder not printed on the PAN Card?
Recently it was published that PAN Cards printed from 01.01.2017 shall be of new design and details of PAN Card holder shall be printed on PAN Card in both English and Hindi. This is good news but there are certain matters which are not being considered by the Indian Government.
Through this write up we request the Govt. to consider the following points so as to make PAN Card a good and complete document / I D Proof-
Correct Hindi Translation: Indian Government should ponder that English words can be written in more than 1 way in Hindi. In this case how will the correct word be selected? Such thousands of mistakes are noticed in Aadhaar. For example, my surname is written in English as ‘Moondra’ and in Hindi it is written as ‘मूंदड़ा’ but when automatically translated by software it is written as ‘मूंदरा’ or ‘मुंद्रा‘, which is incorrect. So PAN Card holder should be requested for the correct translation in Hindi for his / her name so that his / her name is correctly printed in Hindi. If this step is not taken then new mistakes in Hindi will emerge resulting into excessive work load of correcting the PAN Card.
Address on PAN Card: Another important suggestion for PAN Card is to print Address on the back side of the PAN Card. There is sufficient space on the back side of PAN Card so as to fit the address of the holder. This suggestion will make PAN Card a complete document / I D Proof / Card. Presently PAN Card is accepted only as I D Proof and not as Address Proof. After putting this suggestion into action PAN Card will be an all-rounder document / Proof.
Free PAN Card: Like Aadhaar Card, PAN Card should also be issued for free. At least no charge should be charged for issue of the 1st new PAN Card.
After making online or offline application for new pancard , Correction Pan Card , Reprint Pancard, Duplicate Pancard or Second Original pancard, the application is processed by any TIN-FC of NSDL / UTI or any service provider which results in to generation of NSDL’s 15 digit acknowledgement Number or UTI’s 10 digit Coupon Number and after generation of NSDL’s 15 digit acknowledgement Number or UTI’s 10 digit Coupon Number, any applicant of any pan application can check pan status of his / her pan application through Moon Soft’s many websites but particularly www.statuspan.in .
In case, pan applicant has lost or forgot his 15 digit acknowledgement number, that pan applicant can also check status of his / her pan application by filling complete name and Date of Birth of the applicant through www.statuspan.in . And thus, following services have been provided through www.statuspan.in :-
Know Pancard Status : Every applicant for New Pancard or Correction / Reprint / Reissue of pancard is issued a 15 (Fifteen) digit numbered acknowledgement / Receipt. Number so allotted is known as ‘Acknowledgement No.’ in case of NSDL and ‘Coupon No.’ in case of UTI. Such each applicant can/should verify online status of his/her application. This updating status facility is made available by NSDL and UTI. There is no role of TIN-FCs and private service providers.
