PAN Status
Govt of India deactivated more than 11 lakh PAN cards by July this year. According to government rules, it is illegal for a person to keep more than one PAN number under his/ her name and the last date to link your PAN with Aadhaar is August 31. As per a report by The Indian Express, the government has also noticed that several bogus PAN cards are allotted to non-existing people or individuals who have provided false information about themselves for PAN.

The government said that multiple PANs have been allotted to one person and one PAN allotted to multiple persons.
