PAN CARD IS NOT VALID ID PROOF FOR DUPLICATE / CORRECTION PAN
PAN CARD IS NOT VALID ID PROOF FOR DUPLICATE / CORRECTION PAN : It is very surprising that pan card it self is not a valid proof of Identification (POI-Photo ID) and of Date Birth. It means, Indian Government is not accepting pancard itself for correction of pancard, Reprint of Pancard and even for issuance of Duplicate Pancard.
PAN CARD IS NOT VALID ID PROOF FOR DUPLICATE / CORRECTION PAN : But very surprisingly, pancard is a valid POI – Photo ID for Aadhaar Card. For Reprint of Aadhaar / Duplicate Aadhaar Card, no documents or ID proof is required and even hard copy of application is not required whereas in case of Reprint of pancard, applicant will have to submit application as well as all ID proofs again even applicant requires no correction.
PAN CARD IS NOT VALID ID PROOF FOR DUPLICATE / CORRECTION PAN : There is one more problem that Initials are allowed in the name on Aadhaar Card but not in Pancard and then in that case, Aadhaar with initials in name is not valid ID proof for pancard for correction / reprint.
Trick – In such problem, pan correction / reprint applicant should first apply online for correction in Aadhaar on the basis of pancard and after getting the Aadhaar Card, application for correction / reprint of pancard should be applied on the basis of Corrected / reprint Aadhaar Card. But this possible for change / correction in the name only. Pancard is not valid proof for Date Of Birth for Aadhaar Card.
