The Income Tax Department recently deactivated�over 11 lakh PAN cards to weed out "fake" and "duplicate" PAN cards. The move targets individuals with multiple PAN cards and those with PAN cards issued under false documents. To check if your PAN card is still valid, follow these steps - > Go to the�e-filing website. > Click on 'Know Your PAN'. Find it on the left side of the page, under�Services. >After click, it will direct you to a page where you will be required to fill in your details and hit submit. > You will receive a one-time password (OTP) on your registered mobile number for verification. >After you have keyed in the OTP, click on 'Validate' >If your PAN is still valid, it will show that it is 'Active' >If you have multiple PAN numbers under the same details, a pop-up will appear saying that, 'There are multiple records for this query. Please provide additional information' and you will be required to fill in more details. You will then be directed to a new page which will tell you the validity of your PAN.
