Like Aadhar card, PAN card is also an important document. It is used for financial transactions.
It is a 10-digit alphanumeric number that identifies it. If this number is wrong then the PAN card cannot be validated. If the PAN card is lost, then he may have to face many problems.
Recently, the central government also made it mandatory for Indian citizens to link Aadhaar card with PAN card.
In such a situation, if you do not have any other documents, then you can get PAN card without paying any fee with the help of Aadhaar only. Using Aadhaar-based eKYC, PAN cards will be issued instantly.
