A three-month old baby boy has become the youngest PAN card holder in the country. The boy, Ayush Ranjan Rout, born on March 26 this year has been allotted a PAN card no ALAPR3284J.
Ayush's father Saroj Kumar Rout said that they have entered into an agreement with 'Indian News and Feature Trust' under which the baby will work as a model. Since the boy would earn money from modelling, they had applied for the PAN card on May 25, his father said.
