As reported by Akshat Kaushal in business-standard.com on 29 Nov 2013: One in 4 poll candidates hasn't disclosed PAN | Business Standard [h=1] One in 4 poll candidates hasn't disclosed PAN[/h] With total assets of around Rs 56 crore, Dhanvantri Chandela, fielded by the Congress from the Rajouri Garden constituency, is easily one of the richest among candidates for the Delhi Assembly election. But she neither has a permanent account number (PAN) nor has she reported details of her income-tax returns to the Election Commission of India (ECI). Chandela is not alone. Keeping her company on the long list of candidates who have not disclosed their PAN or I-T details are the Bahujan Samajwadi Party’s (BSP’s) Munni Seth-Rajendra Sharma, seeking election from Madhya Pradesh’ Dewas Assembly constituency (total assets to the tune of Rs 12.67 crore), and Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP’s) Bikaner candidate Sahi Ram Bishnoi (assets of Rs 1.72 crore), among others. If their nomination papers are anything to go by, these people have no PAN and do not file their income-tax returns. In Chhattisgarh, Delhi, Madhya Pradesh, Mizoram and Rajasthan — the five states where elections have either taken place or are to take place this year — one in every four candidates has not disclosed details of PAN, while every second has not given income-tax return details. According to Association of Democratic Reforms (ADR) data for various states, compiled by Business Standard, of the 3,337 candidates fielded, the affidavits of 914 (28 per cent) have no mention of PAN and those of 1,502 (45 per cent) do not give income-tax return details. The income of some of these candidates may not fall in the taxable bracket, but that cannot be true for all — at least 99 of those deciding not to give out I-T details have total declared assets of more than Rs 1 crore. In candidates’ nomination papers, there are two separate columns for giving out details of PAN and income-tax returns. But, in a majority of cases where these details have not been given out, the candidates have chosen to write ‘Nil’. A senior ECI officer says submitting wrong information cannot be a ground for a candidate’s disqualification but he surely can be prosecuted. According to S Y Quraishi, former chief election commissioner of India, it is the responsibility of the returning officer to ensure no column in a candidate’s affidavit is left blank. But, he says, the officer cannot always verify the veracity of a piece of information given. “If a candidate gives false information in his affidavit, anyone can file a case against him and challenge his candidature.” Among the five states, Mizoram seems to lead the pack, with 78 per cent of its candidates not disclosing their PAN details. Nearly 37 per cent of the 142 contesting in the state (52 candidates) have declared assets of over Rs 1 crore. About 43 per cent of Chhattisgarh’s 983 candidates, 16 per cent of Rajasthan’s 733 and 15 per cent of Delhi’s 796 have not mentioned their PAN. The proportion of candidates with assets of more than Rs 1 crore in these states stands at 22 per cent, 47 per cent and 33 per cent, respectively. So far as those who have not filed their I-T return details are concerned, their share in the total number of candidates stands at 67 per cent in Chhattisgarh, 40 per cent in Madhya Pradesh, and 39 per cent in Delhi.
I stay in the gulf with my family. I have no ration card, no voters ID or Adhaar card. But I have PAN card. We got gas connection in 1997 through tatkaal (or something, I am not sure), we frequently visit India and need gas. Hence, we are NRI, we did not get a ration card or voters ID, but now it is compulsory for maintaining the Gas Connection. what we do? advise me? How can I get ration card/voters ID for our family? I read in the newspaper, regarding submitting returns for PAN. Is it applicable for everybody including NRIs, or it is for tax payees only ? I request your attention regards

I am an engineer currently working in engineers india limited. i have joined eil in july 2011. i applied for my pan card and it was sent on 3rd august by the NSDL. but was sent back from the post office without delivering. i need my pan card urgently. what do i do now? i have been facing this problem from quite a long time. even my joining letter was undelivered and sent back. the post office in my area is gopinath nagar postoffice with code 781016. i have two queries...1) how do i get my pancard back? 2)can their be some strict action against the careless work ethic of the post office?
Hi, I had sent in an application to NSDL to correct my surname on my PAN Card. They kept pointing out discrepancy upon discrepancy and I had to file a second correction application. I also sent them a gazetted officer letter for the correction request. Finally they are now pointing out to the following 2 discrepancies: 1. The gazetted officer had written the word "attested" above his signature and this is invalid. Where is the Income Tax procedure or rule for this? Nowhere is the format of the gazetted officer letter presented on NSDL's or Income Tax department's website. As far as the English dictionary is concerned, attested also means "verified." 2. The letter explaining the discrepancy should come from a Class 1 gazetted officer. Nowhere in NSDL's or Income Tax's website mentioned that only a Class 1 gazetted officer should give the letter. In fact, even their discrepancy letters do not mention anything about Class 1. Can RTI help resolve this and if yes, whom should I direct the RTI query for the PAN issue to? Thanks so much for your help. --Sal
As reported by Sanjay Sharma at timesofindia.indiatimes.com on Feb 4, 2011 CHANDIGARH: Punjab's ruling party Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) has not revealed its Permanent Account Number (PAN) in the income tax returns filed before the department, an RTI inquiry has revealed. Unavailability of PAN hampers tracking financial transactions of assesses in banking network and defaulters can invite heavy penalty. The disclosure was made by Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR) and National Election Watch (NEW), who procured the details of returns filed by various political parties after a protracted battle. The two NGOs have not been able to analyze the 2008-2009 return, as the assessment order has no details of the party's income and expenditure. Revealing the details of SAD's income tax returns, ADR member Jagdeep S Chhokar said the analysis has been done for fiscal 2006-07 and 2007-08. Total income declared in 2006-07 is Rs 9.5 crore and in 2007-08, Rs 8 crore. For 2008-09, it has projected a shortfall of Rs 1.09 crore between expenditure and income. Its total assets shown till March 31 are valued at Rs 8.24 crore. The party in Punjab has apparently taken refuge in I-T provisions which do not force political parties to reveal details of income and expenditure.
Hi, I have sent RTI application to Income Tax Department of area where my spouse works seeking information of my spouse and in-law. I had also attached with my application CIC Decision No.1816/IC(A)/2008 dated 10thJanuary, 2008 which has allowed such disclosure. After 15 days i received letter from CPIO asking me to send them PAN nos. of both the persons whose details i was asking. I have the PAN detail of my spouse but i dont have PAN of my in-law.PAN of my spouse was made from other city where used to reside previously. When i contacted CPIO he was not willing to coperate and raised further 2 grounds as follows:- 1. Since PAN card was made from different city which does not come under the Jurisdiction of their IT office hence he cant give me detail of my spouse. 2. Without the PAN details of in-law he cant give any detail of Income TAx. My question from learned members is- are the above 2 points justified. How can I, being a common citizen, gather details of PAN. Waiting for reply.
Hi, I sent a letter under RTI to IT deptt. and the fee was paid thru IPOs. The PIO in his reply has asked for PAN number for making payment credit to central govt. account. Is it mandatory to quote the PAN number for fee paid for RTI application???
