PAN is an abbreviation used for Permanent Account Number. The government issues this document for individuals for payment of income tax. PAN is given to individuals and corporate. This is to pay income tax. With digitization and development of information technology, various companies and services have started verification /authentication of PAN Card. Like the Aadhaar number, the PAN Card is also used for identity verification for an individual and a corporate.

To avoid counterfeit and fake PAN cards, the verification/ authentication process was brought out by various internet service providers. Verification of PAN card forms a one-step process, and the Income Tax Department has allowed PAN API to be verified by multiple organizations/ government entities including the National Securities Depository Limited.
