Not able to get PAN card for my name – Strange case ?

POSTED BY synyster ON March 23, 2014 9:40 am COMMENTS (2)


I had applied for PAN card twice but it got rejected ,  my name is Ravi S,  and all my documents have Ravi S as the name in it but PAN card doesn’t allow initials as there last names so i wrote it in expanded form as RAVI SHYAMKUMAR and sent the relevant documents but they were rejected as my name did not match the proof document.

so, keeping that in mind i got my voter ID  name changed to RAVI SHYAM KUMAR and applied for the PAN card second time but still it got rejected saying my date of birth proof document\’s name did not match the name i provided, now what do i do? all my documents , bank statements are in RAVI S,  i have only my voter\’s ID as RAVI SHYAM KUMAR, How can i resolve this issue?

thank you,

    Regarding your date of birth proof. Which I guess is your 10th Certificate. You need to changer your name using affidavit and publishing in local newspaper and then carry it for future use.

    Dear Ravi, first of all, please change your name in bank account. Then use this bank pass book for both ID as well as address proof.
