It must be noted that since last year, Aadhaar Card and PAN cards have been made interchangeable for income tax purposes. Also it is mandatory to link your PAN with Aadhaar card till 31st March 2020.

PAN card is an important identity proof for all the individuals in India including farming community and is basically required for purposes like opening bank account, filing Income Tax Return, conducting financial transactions etc.

The income tax department issues PAN card via two agencies i.e. NSDL and UTI-ITSL. At present, it takes more than one month to get a new pan card but with this new facility, people will instantly obtain their Permanent Account Number. All they need to have is a valid Aadhaar card. After that go to the income tax office with it and apply for PAN Card.
