The pan card verification is important for checking the authenticity of the pan card holder. Any financial transaction above Rs. 50000 should have pan details quoted on the documents. The pan card verification status can be taken by the authorised users such as

Government Agencies (Central/State) :

Reserve Bank of India Banks Depositories Depository Participants Mutual Funds Companies (Required to furnish Annual Information Return) Credit card Companies / Institutions Any other entity required to furnish Annual Information Return Stock Exchanges Companies and Government deductor (Required to file TDS/TCS return)

These entities genuinely require pan card confirmation. The first step for pan card verification is to register with NSDL pan website-

The services provided for pan card verification on NSDL url are :

(1) Screen based verification
(2) File based verification
(3) Software (API) Based Verification

In case of valid PAN, name of the PAN holder, last date of PAN update as per ITD database and the status as "existing and valid" will be displayed. If the PAN is a fake PAN as per ITD database, the status will be shown as "Fake PAN".

In case the PAN is not found in database, the response will be "not in ITD database". In such a case, if the user is able to provide a proof of the PAN (copy of PAN card or PAN allotment letter), NSDL will forward the same to ITD for investigation.
