An assessee may have been allotted multiple PAN Card. The multiple PAN card may have been allotted to the Assessee for many reasons i.e. He may have applied multiple times for allotment of PAN and every time he has been allotted a PAN card or may have inadvertently allowed multiple PAN card by Income tax Department , NSDL or UTI. Assessee who have more than one PAN should immediately Apply for surrender of additional PAN number(s) allotted to them as having more than one PAN may make them liable to a penalty of Rs. 10,000/-

Assessee can apply for surrender of PAN card by two methods.

1. Manually –

a. Write a letter to this effect to the assessing officer under whose jurisdiction you have been filing your returns. The letter must contain details such as your name, contact details, details of the PAN card to be retained, details of the duplicate PAN card(s) which you need to surrender, etc. Keep  the acknowledgement copy of the letter that you have filed with the I-T department, stating that you are surrendering your additional PAN. That is sufficient as proof of surrender and no additional confirmation from the I-T authorities is required. On receipt of the acknowledgement, there is no need for you to wait for intimation from the income tax department considering that the PAN submitted has now been cancelled by them. The acknowledgment copy of the letter submitted will more than solve the purpose.

b. Manually Fill the Form No. 49A for change/Correction in correction in PAN and submit the same at your nearest UTI pan centers or NSDL TIN Facilitation centers.

2. Online

a. Visit the Following Link and fill the detail in the online Form given at the link and following the instructions

http://incometax.sparshindia.com/pan/newPAN.asp

b. You can also surrender the pan online  by filing a application “change in pan data ” through UTI pan centers or NSDL TIN Facilitation centers.In application fill spare pan number in Last row of the Form.

  • Nanu

    Hello Sir,

    I have 2 PAN cards. On 1st one I had taken the personal loan and credit card after that I was unable to make full payment, so I had done with settlement for CC and Personal loan HDFC Bank. Now my CIBIL went down and no bank was giving me Credit card.
    So I had applied for the 2nd PAN card and I got that. Now I am using my 2nd PAN card everywhere but I wanted to surrender my 1st PAN card which have CIBIL issue. Is it possible to surrender 1st one without any issue?

    Your suggestion will solve my big problem.

    • Monish

      Nanu – did you get the answer? If not then i tell you actually you should not be doing it but reality is you can do it unless someone really pay much attention to the case.
