Its not BANG BANG BANG , its PAN PAN PAN ! ! !


Hi Friends this is praga, In this post ,I want to share a information about PAN Account Number, It sounds crazy but I got amused after hearing this and i hope you too will be.

Most of us have PAN Card, It is issued by income Tax Department, it is used for bank deposits above Rs. 50,000/=, purchase and sale of immovable properties, vehicles etc.

It is a 10 character alphanumeric identifier. Each char says something about them, lets listen what they are going to say..:-p

Lets take a sample PAN Number AAAPL1234C


First five characters are always Alphabets


Next four are always numerals


Last Char is always alpha check digit

I am the PAN Number



We are first 3 character, we range from AAA to ZZZ


Me the fourth character, will inform about type of holder of the card. Various types of holders are:

A — Association of Persons (AOP)

B — Body of Individuals (BOI)

C — Company

F — Firm

G — Government

H — HUF (Hindu Undivided Family)

L — Local Authority

J — Artificial Judicial Person

P — Individual

T — AOP (Trust)

For most of the normal people like us, 4th character would be P


Me the 5th character represents

  • the surname or last name of the person, in the case of a “Personal” PAN card, where the fourth character is “P” or
  • (b) of the name of the Entity, Trust, society, or organisation in the case of Company/ HUF/ Firm/ AOP/ BOI/ Local Authority/ Artificial Jurdical Person/ Govt, where the fourth character is “C”,”H”,”F”,”A”,”T”,”B”,”L”,”J”,”G”.

last 5

We the last 5 alphanumeric characters are check digit


Its time for you to take out your logo Card and check the PAN format..:-):-)
