However, obtaining MVATCST TIN remain the authority of Officers.

    Besides, i wanted to ask whether after fillingup this form i need to submit any documents if yes which are those…….? and whether i need to visit government office for completing registration formalities..

  4. sagar says:


    I was partner in a new start up partnership firm since Jan 2012 and I retired in August 2013. During this period my residence address was the registered address for that firm. Last week I received MTR6 form and then I came to know about PTEC number. After little investigation I came to know that PTEC number shows “my name as Part of XYZ firm and effective date as Jan 2012”. Until last week i.e. 22Jun2015, I was not aware of PTEC number. I dont even know who applied it – I am guessing may be the CA of XYZ firm applied it.

    Please help me wrt questions as below
    1) How will I know when & who applied for PTEC under my name?
    2) Is it not binding on tax department to notify PTEC number to the respective person in writing ? because I never received any such note/document from government. And all of a sudden last week I received MTR6 form
    3) Who is responsible to pay PTEC tax ? (under partnership firm)
    4) In the retirement agreement, it is agreed that I won’t be liable to any tax (present & future) for the firm. and I don’t want to pay any tax related to that firm. Now since this PTEC number indicates “my name as part of that firm”, how shall I approach government and get rid of this PTEC stuff attached to my name ?
