As all of us  are aware about the  MCA has made it compulsory vide General Circular No.11/2011, New Delhi Dated 07.04.2011 read with 66/2011 Dated 4/10/2011, to inform PAN of every Director/Person holding Director Identification Number (DIN) up to 15th December, 2011 if not informed/furnished earlier at the time of applying DIN by such Director .  The circular also made it mandatory for all new DIN Applicants to mention their PAN No. in DIN-1 eform

Then the problem is being faced that how to check that,  Director who are already having DIN had furnished PAN at the time of applying for DIN or not? How to know the whether the PAN is furnished or not?  there are two method to know whether PAN is furnished or not which are as follows:-

Method- I

You may just enter the DIN of such Director in blank E-Form No. 1A in entry no. 14 , if the PAN of such Director is reflecting in colum for PAN then same had been mentioned at the time of applying DIN , otherwise you need to file DIN-4 with MCA for informing the PAN of such Director to MCA within the above mentioned time.

Note: It is not necessary that PAN reflecting in Form No. 1A/furnished at the time of applying DIN is correct, therefore please verify the same through the following link :

Method- II
Alternatively we can also check if PAN is furnished or not by going on the following  link:-

If PAN is updated then the same will be available in MCA database otherwise we have to get the same updated.
