Why You Should Have a Pan Card.

In the social jungle of human existence, there is no feeling of being alive without a sense of identity. ~Erik Erikson

Permanent Account Number is a 10 digit alphanumeric number issued by the Income Tax Authorities under the supervision of Central Board of Direct Taxes or CBDT.

It is a unique number assigned to an individual and is mandatory from taxation point of view and every individual should have one. The primary motive and purpose of a PAN card is to track the financial transactions carried out by individuals so as to keep tabs on any illegal money laundering and also to avoid tax evasion. However apart from filling your taxes and giving details of your financial transactions, PAN is required for a number of other reasons as well.

It’s just not an account number but it proves the nationality of an individual which may help in times if any trouble occurs in future.
