c. A time deposit with a banking company or a co-operative bank or a Post Office

d. Opening an account [other than a time-deposit referred to above or a Jandhan / Basic Bank Deposit Account] with a banking company or a co-operative bank.

In addition to the existing requirement of quoting of PAN in respect of cash deposits in excess of Rupees fifty thousand in a day, quoting of PAN will now also be mandatory in respect of cash deposits aggregating to Rupees two lakh fifty thousand or more during the period 09th November, 2016 to 30th December, 2016 as per an amendment notified by CBDT on 15-11-2016.

    Common Man Agrees To The Mandatory Provisions. PAN Quoting Is Welcome.

    If An Account Is KYC Compliant Why Banks Insist for Copy Of PAN.
    Bank Managers Require Education. Demand Unnecessary Documents For Transactions Covered BY Above Circular to Satisfy Their Authority.

    Government Needs to make Clear To Banker Managers They Are EMployees Not Masters Of Account Holders.

    Else Modiji Will Turn To Them Next.
