The Income Tax Service issues a Permanent Account Number (PAN), which is a ten-digit alphanumeric number printed on a plastic card. Tax payments, TDS/TCS credits, tax returns and other transactions are only possible with a PAN. If a PAN holder loses their PAN card and forgets their PAN, an incident may occur. If there is no change in the PAN data, one can find out his PAN by using the “Reprint PAN card” option directly via the UTIITSL portal.
