Is your PAN Card fake or real? Here’s how to find out

New Delhi: After the number of cases of fraud rose in recent years, the incorporation of QR codes to PAN card ID began. A QR Code is incorporated in all PAN cards issued after July 2018. The fake and legitimate PAN cards are distinguished by the QR code generated on the PAN card. All that is required is a smartphone and the Income Tax Department’s app.

During the Corona era, the number of cases of bogus PAN cards has steadily increased. It is critical to determine whether the PAN card you have is genuine or a forgery. You can now check whether a PAN card is genuine or not from the comfort of your own home.

You can open a bank account, purchase or sell property, buy or sell a vehicle, submit an ITR, and buy jewellery worth more than Rs 2 lakh using the 10 digits of your PAN card. However, many incidents of bogus PAN cards have recently surfaced.

Although the PAN Card is a government document with no direct benefits, it is extremely important in banking and other financial problems. From financial activities to opening a bank account, a PAN card is essential. Apart from that, a PAN card is required for a variety of important duties, such as purchasing and selling real estate and filing income tax returns.
