  2. Dear Sir, it is nice to have a standard format for verification certificate for the proof of address and identitiy of the person, etc. But, at the same, please say, whether one can insist/ask for the I.D. No.or xerox copy of the Identity Card and Mobile No. of the Gazetted Officer or MLA/M.P./Municipal Councillor, when we are facing difficulty in getting their signature/attestation for our PAN Application verification certificate? Why can’t the IT Department drop the said column, i.e., (I.D. No. of the officer signing the verification certificate and insisting the xerox copy of the I.D.Card of the Officer). Is this the way, the IT Department is serving the people OR discouraging the people to apply for new PAN Card?. Do they know the pains one take to get the signature of the Gazetted Officer, when he is short of one thing, i.e., proof of address, or voter’s ID card?. Please simplify the rule and encourage the people to get the PAN Card easily and brought them under the ambit of IT regime honorably. Shall I expect a reply from your side, regarding the above problem. Thanking you, yours, subramaniam.v.

    1. I dont think there is any such provision for the common people. This facility has been introduces to facilitate people with no identification proof for PAN application.

      1. Is it compulsory to obtain mobile no., ID card no. and xerox copy of the ID card from the Municipal Councilor, or we can leave those fields blank?

          1. It is nothing but nonsence. No Gazzetted Officer will give his ID Copy. I am stuck with this problem and given a grievance petiion to CBDT to emove this harassment to general pubic.

  3. sir,
    getting job id xerox of gazatted officer for pan card correction is very tough and practically not possible so kindly advice in this regard

  4. There is just harassment of common people everywhere, and this is one such rule, the rule makers are unknown to the ground realities. No Gazatted Officer, MP or MLA wants to give the photocopy of his I-Card. This provision should certainly be relooked into.

  5. This requirement of No. of I.D. Card and xerox copy of the I.D.Card of the Officer, is very cumbersome and it annoys the Officers also. Pleaase discontinue this practice.

  6. It is very difficult to have a certificate from gazatted officer ..I am out of my home town who is going to give a certificate as a proof ..if one can make pan card on the basis of aadhar card,Dl,or with other documents then why he/she cannot make the correction on the basis of this document only ..and the mistakes is done by your side only ..
    This is totally wrong ..think on this subject u r charging money form every correction and that’s why making lots of mistakes
    U should correct the mistakes without any cost …lots of people are facing same problem
    Think over it
