PAN Application Processing
The PAN (Permanent Account Number) card is an important document for conducting even the simplest of financial transactions like opening a savings bank account, applying for a debit/credit card and so on. It is a 10-digit alphanumeric identity allotted by the income tax department to an individual, company, Hindu Undivided Family (HUF) or any other person. Earlier, to apply for PAN, an individual had to fill up forms offline as specified by the income tax department and must submit it at Income Tax Authority and you are not allowed to open a Bank account until you get an acknowledgement for the same. Even now, there are limited PAN Service centers available to help individuals to raise request for a PAN Number.
To facilitate our customers, we are offering a facility to apply for a PAN Card within the Bank premise and obtain the card directly and not having a PAN is not going to delay your account opening process. We are providing a PAN processing counter across all our Bank Branches and we request our customers to make use of this facility in case you do not have a PAN allotted yet.
