Are You Holding more than one PAN Card?

While the Government of India has taken foolproof steps to check issuance of more than one Aadhaar Card or Passport to its residents, there are instances of issuance of more than one PAN Card or Voter Cards.

What is the Penalty for Addition PAN, VOTER ID, Aadhaar or Passport:

Under the provisions of IT Act, No person who has been allotted PAN Card can apply for another PAN Card. Penalty of Rs.10000 is imposed under section 272B of the Income Tax Act if any individual fails to meet this condition. If more than one PAN Card are embossed with the photograph of any individual then it is clear case of holding more than one PAN Card and the individual has to decide as to which PAN Card - he or she wants to retain so that the rest of the PAN Cards can be surrendered for cancellation and inactivation. Visit Samadhan Kender to know the existence of more than one PAN Card in your name and surrender the additional PAN Cards lest you find yourself trapped in deep trouble and invite not only penalty but your online income tax profile may also become a mess. There can be multiple reasons that duplicate and additional PAN cards are issued by NDSL, UTI and Income Tax Department but the onus lies on the individuals to check their existing PAN cards before applying for the new PAN card. One of the reasons for issuance of additional PAN cards to females is that females get PAN card issued before their marriage and after marriage with the change in Surname or Name they again apply for fresh PAN card instead of modifying the original PAN Cards.

Similarly under Section 31 of Peoples Representation Act, any person keeping more than one Voter ID Cards from more than one places would have to suffer Jail Term of One Year and fine or both if caught.  To avoid penalty you can visit any Common Service Center in India providing online registration, deletion, rectification of Voter ID services. Samadhan Kender is one such unique service provider in Rajpura District Patiala.

UIDAI has implemented stringent measures to check issuance of more than one or duplicate aadhaars which were detected by the UIDAI. One of the key reasons for duplicate aadhaars slipping through was the collection of biometrics. According to the accuracy study conducted after 84 million aadhaar enrollments, around 0.23% (negligible) of the residents' fingerprints and IRISes did not register well making the record vulnerable to error. Due to failure of finger prints in case of less than 0.01% enrollments, Samadhan Kender will not be responsible for non-generation of Aadhaars even after enrollments. A very low %age of fresh enrollments get rejected as the residents were already enrolled and they forgot to collect and generate their Aadhaar issued at the time of their first enrollment.

Surrender your duplicates immediately to avoid penalty under the respective Acts.
