Abolishing of uploading of scanned copy of PAN Card at the time of registration of establishment - regarding. - The Employees Provident Funds and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952


At the time of registration of an establishment, employer has to upload digitally signed copy of PAN card. There is a mandate of Ease of Doing business to eliminate the requirement of submitting scanned copy of PAN card at the time of registration.

2. In this regard, it is informed that the requirement of uploading the scanned copy of PAN card at the time of registration of establishment has been examined and online system has been put in place for verifying details of PAN directly from the Income Tax Department. Hence, it has been decided by the competent authority that there is no need to upload the scanned copy of PAN card at the time of registration of establishments. Information Services Division has already carried out necessary modifications in the software accordingly.

3. The field offices are, therefore, advised not to insist on the copy of PANcard at the time of registration of a new establishment.

Yours faithfully,
