In my physical PAN card the name is appearing correct. But when I logging incometax site and enter PAN to e-file the return, my first name and surname is reversed ( surname in coming in first name place and vice versa).
1. Can it it corrected anyway preferably online ?
2. I have to file ITR-2 this time, so I have to upload the XML file. What should I mention in the excel sheet ? If I mention firstname and surname correctly, will it lead to mis-match and rejection of IT returns. Or should I mention what it is appearing in income tax site.
- Yes, but offline application submission (as of now).
- Mention as it appears on PAN card.
