PAN DIGITS MEANING

PRAVEEN KUMAR (MBA (Finance) B.Com.(P))   (3413 Points)

CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHAT IS THE MEANING OF FIRST 3 DIGITS IN PAN NO. ISSUED BY INCOME TAX DEPARTMENT OF INDIA AND ALSO THE 10TH DIGIN MEANING.

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

ASSUME PAN NO. IS AAASA1234A

AAA S A 1234 A
|----- | | | ----- | |
5 4 3 2 1
1.Alphabetic check Digit
2.Sequential number running from 0001 to 9999
3.First character of assessee’s last name/surname
4.Status
5.Alphabetic series running from AAA to ZZZ

Permanent Account Number (PAN) is a ten-digit alphanumeric identifier, issued by Income Tax Department. Each assessee (e.g. individual, firm, company etc.) is issued a unique PAN.

1-5 field are alpha(A to Z)
6-9 field are numeric(0-9)
10 field is alpha(A-Z)


Forth field of pan denotes assessee status :
for individual="P"
for Company="C"
for Trust ="T"
for partnership firm="F"
Body of Individual:"B"

Association of persons:"A"
HUF="H"
Local authority:"L"
Govt.="G"
judicial artificial person:"j"

2.Fifth field of PAN denotes NAME


In case of individual: Surname/last name(as given in pan application)
for ex. in case of Ram Kumar(individual)
5th field will be "K"
4th field will be "P"
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)
5th field will be first letter of Name/first Name
for ex : In case of Suresh Jindal (HUF)(confirmed)
5th field will be "S"(first letter of First name i.e Suresh)
4th field will be "H"(for Huf)

for ex: in case of ABB LTD(confirmed)
5th field will be "A"(first letter of First name)

4th field will be "C"(for company)
