Tips to surrender additional / Duplicate PAN card and subsequent consequences

In case individuals have over one PAN card, they may penalise for the same as the government has mandated that PAN and Aadhaar cards will have to linked. As per Section 139A of Income Tax Act, 1961, an individual can hold only one PAN card. This section deals with PAN card eligibility.


As per Section 272B of the Income Tax Act, the income tax officer can impose a penalty of Rs.10,000 on an individual who has over one PAN card. However, in case individuals have more than one card, they can deactivate the extra card by visiting the NSDL online portal and fill the form for PAN correction. Once the form has been filled and payment made, individuals will receive an acknowledgement.


Additionally, individuals can do the same offline as well by submitting the PAN correction form at the closest NSDL collection centre and fill and letter with the jurisdictional Assessing Officer and pay for the same.

Important Update on Uploading of Form 15CA and 15CB on New Income Tax E-filing Portal

In the previous e-filing regime, the CA would separately upload 15CB. In the new e-filing regime, it is an integrated workflow. Taxpayer files 15CA and assigns to CA. The CA will then see in his worklist as 15CB pending with prefilled data. CA will fill 15CB and submit back to taxpayer. The taxpayer will then accept the 15CB, as prepared by the CA, in his worklist and download the same.
