I HAVE SEARCHED THE INTERNET & FOUND THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION ONLY ABOUT 4TH & 5TH DIGIT OF PAN NO. HERE IT IS:

1.Alphabetic check Digit
2.Sequential number running from 0001 to 9999
3.First character of assessee’s last name/surname

Association of persons:"A"
HUF="H"
Local authority:"L"

2.Fifth field of PAN denotes NAME


In case of individual: Surname/last name(as given in pan application)

In case of Ram Kumar Gupta(Individual)
5th field will be "G"
4th field will be "P"


In case of All Other Assesees (not confirmed for all the assessee)
