My PAN allotted to someone else?
Shocking, this is a must-read.
I got a notice today, saying I would be fined for providing a wrong PAN when filing my income tax returns.
I checked with my card, to see if I had entered the wrong number, but it is right!
I have been told to get a new number from UTI!
The notice says the last date for settling this problem is March 16.
And the letter has a March 16 stamp of the Vile Parle post-office.
I live at Vasai. The letter got to me today.
