I am having two PAN numbers on my name. Unknowingly applied second time after getting job.
I never used first PAN number anywhere. Could you please advise how to surrender my unused PAN Number? I tried doing this online but none of the income tax websites are working.
This is what IT Dept say about this problem “You may fill and submit PAN Change Request application form by mentioning the PAN which you are using currently on top of the form. All other PAN/s inadvertently allotted to you should be mentioned at item no. 11 of the form and the corresponding PAN card copy/s should be submitted for cancellation along with the form.”.
Hi,To surrender PAN,Visit the Income Tax Department website and go to the ‘Surrender Duplicate PAN’ option,then enter the details of the duplicate PAN number and the PAN you wish to retain as well your personal details such as full name, date or birth and contact details and submit the form.You can also post an application to income tax department to surrender of PAN Card.
