I-T department does away with mandatory quoting of father's name for PAN applications
Updated : November 21, 2018 05:37 AM IST
The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) through a notification amended the income tax rules and said the application forms would give an option to the applicant as to whether mother is a single parent and the applicant wishes to furnish the name of mother only.
Currently, furnishing father's name is mandatory for the allotment of Permanent Account Number (PAN).
