PAN card was established in the year 1961 under the income tax act department but is managed by a higher body central board for direct taxes (CBDT). It serves as proof identification but not as Indian citizenship. Note holding more than one Pan card is illegal and can lead to government taking serious on the Pan holder.

This is due to the fact that you are required to send an acknowledgement receipt to the UTI- Infrastructure Technology (UTIITL) or the National Securities Depository (NSDL) agency that is authorized by the Income Tax Department to support PAN application.
