I think most of people under age 18 will not have the PAN card as they are not working or having jobs but Aadhar will be given to person from year one onwards. So PAN will be less than Aadhar obviously. I think this will waste resources , money and time

Aadhaar must asked for Bank, Mobile, property etc to avoid duplication.

Thomas

This is again complicating things which the tax people loves to do,so that the common.man has to go in circles.If the aadhar can do a job,why the hell he will need a pan?

Chakravarthy (Irving, Texas)

Why do you need two identifiers for the same person...It is waste of money/time/confusion/paperwork and encourages a lot of corrupt practices...I’d say link everything to Aadhar...Please follow US SSN as a model example...

We have a huge bureaucracy. All these people have to be kept busy.

A large no of citizens have more than one pan no This was when computerisation was only partially done.Trust this has been corrected.Pan card issued years ago has photos which bears little resemblance to the present status .Should be renewed once in 5/10 years.

Sameer (Pune)

whatever..... does it really matter why have two numbers?

venkataraman krishna (chennai)

it appears that people need more reasonng for this interchangebaility. If one number is sufficient the interchange is not needed. the tax payer can quote either of the two.

AVTAR SINGH (SAMRALA,DISTT.LUDHIA)

HOW CAN DEDUCTION OF TDS,HOW CAN TRACE TDS /26 AS UNDER THE I.D. ADHAR CARD, HOW CAN REFUND THE TDS THROUGH UID

All gates are closing quickly for dishonest citizens who don’t pay their fair share.

Some confusion as on today but will see the light shortly as the problems crop up. However one must have a PAN card And AADHAR card mandatory but interlinked. So carry both to validate yourself apart from the voters card. Yew w are going the digital way and mod .

Munjal

I don''t see the point of allocating a PAN in this case. you have a unique identifier in the form of UID which is pwrpetual. just use that on your back end right ! The various departments just wanna work in Silos !

Kaizad

if UIDAI and CBDT have linked their databases , they should find the gap themselves and issue PAN cards to individuals who don''t have PAN No . this is definitely not the reason .
