Issuance of Form 2 for Declarations under IDS 2016 (without PAN) by 25 Nov. 2016

CBDT Pushes IT Officials for Issuance of Form 2 for Declarations without PAN under IDS 2016 by 25 Nov. 2016

It has come to CBDT’s notice that some declarations under IDS, 2016 received manually without PAN are still pending for issuance of Form -2 due to non-availability of PAN. CBDT has pushed IT Officials to ensure that issuance of Form-2 in all such cases, in accordance with instruction No. 10 of 2016 dt. 28.09.2016 is done by 25.11.2016.

Directorate of Systems have sent e-mail and SMS to the concerned officers to update PAN in Form-1 or to communicate the PAN application number to the Directorate for expediting PAN allotment in such cases.  Further, attempts have also been made by the filing team to telephonically contact the officers to sensitise about the urgency of the same.

Despite such efforts, several such cases are still pending and the relevant information has not been sent to the Directorate of Systems. In view of the approaching deadline for payment of first installment under the IDS, 2016, CBDT has asked for taking all necessary steps, including contacting the declarant to obtain the PAN or ensuring that the declarant removes all deficiencies in the PAN application, so that allotment of PAN can be expedited.
