Update PAN details to avoid blocking of e-filing account by the Income Tax Department
August, 29th 2016

This is in continuation of the earlier announcement dated 24th August 2016 (Annexed at A) on updation of PAN details to avoid blocking of e-filing account by the Income Tax Department. The issue of deactivating of the e-filing accounts of the members of the ICAI by the Income Tax Department on account of the mismatch in ‘Name’/ ‘PAN No.’ / ‘Date of Birth’ in the Income Tax records and the records available with the ICAI was taken up with the Income Tax Authorities on 26th August 2016. 

Income Tax Authorities has temporarily activated the e-filing accounts which were blocked on account of the mismatch in the ‘Name’ to provide another opportunity to the members of ICAI to remove the discrepancies in the records available with the ICAI and the Income Tax Department. To remove the above said ‘Name’ discrepancy in the affected cases as informed by the Income Tax Department, an email indicating the name of the member as per ICAI records and as per the records received from the Income Tax Department has been sent to all the concerned members. The said email content is annexed at ‘B’ below for reference. The affected members can also remove this discrepancy through the following link: 

Kindly note that the members who are not yet reported under this category of ‘Name’ mismatch by the Income Tax department will not be able to access the link. 

As regards the discrepancies pertaining to the mismatch in the ‘Date of Birth’ and ‘PAN Number’, concerned members are being informed through email to indicate the correct details along with supporting documents and the steps as warranted by the office will be taken. However, as of now these accounts will remain blocked. 

The members who have not yet provided their PAN details for ICAI records can submit the same through the following link: 

Members may also file their complaint/ grievance at and/or for resolving the same.

Annexure A
Request to provide/update PAN details to avoid blocking of e-filing account by the Income Tax Department. - (24-08-2016)

It has been noticed that the Income Tax Department has blocked/ disabled the e-Filing account of the members whose correct PAN details are not available with the Department. Upon following with the Income Tax Department, it has been informed that the blocking and disablement of the E-filing Account of the members by them is initially temporary in nature which would be made permanent if correct PAN details are not updated/provided to Income Tax Department which are in synchronisation with the details available with the ICAI. In this regard, members had been earlier requested to submit their correct PAN details with the ICAI vide e-mails in November 2015, December 2015 and also through Announcements dated 20/11/2015, 16/12/2015 hosted at ICAI Website, wherein time limits to update/provide the PAN details were also prescribed. Further in the e-mail dated 6/5/2016 members were requested to update/ provide their PAN details latest upto 14th May 2016. 

The Income Tax Department has blocked/ disabled the e-Filing account of the members whose correct PAN details are not available with the Department.
