The Income-tax Department is in the process of upgrading software application. It is for information of PAN applicants that PAN allotment by income tax department will remain suspended between 05.10.2015 to 9.10.2015 due to PAN data migration activity.
However PAN applications, through online and off line modes will continue to be received by PAN service centres of NSDL and M/S UTIITSL. The back log of PAN applications will be cleared within three days. Inconvenience to taxpayers is regretted.
