In such transaction someone is responsible to file the AIR and file it to IT dept. through TIN-NSDL but it was published somewhere that in almost 60 % of the entries reported in AIR does not have a PAN. The reason behind that is person doing this transaction are not giving their PAN to the person who are liable to file the return. Though this number is reducing day by day but yet it is large in number.

    Answer:

  • Usually Public think that if PAN is not supplied than our transaction cannot be traced by the dept. To some extent they are right but not 100 %. In new era of computerization it is possible to trace transaction even without PAN.
  • A software has been developed by the DIT (systems) to match the transaction without PAN in AIR. According to tender floated on Income Tax website there are 8,00,000 transaction without PAN reported in AIR and department has a PAN database of 5 crore. The software will detect two possible PAN for the every transaction without PAN reported in AIR on the basis of, Name of the person, address etc. then each suggested PAN for a particular transaction by the software will be verify by the person manually on the basis of other parameters not checked by the software and after the complete verification PAN will be assigned to the transaction, in this process in our view dept. will have a success almost 60-70 %.
  • So person who are not reporting information in new ITR by presuming that if PAN not given transaction cannot be traced , should reconsider it and should ready themselves according to alertness of Income Tax dept.
