Individuals and businesses must obtain a PAN card for various financial transactions, including filing income tax returns, opening a bank account, and investing in securities. PAN is an essential document that serves as a tool for tracking financial transactions and tax compliance.
Latest Laws regarding PAN Registration in India
The latest laws regarding PAN registration in India were introduced in the Finance Act, of 2021. According to the new laws, individuals and businesses are required to quote their PAN for various high-value transactions, including:
• Purchase or sale of immovable property worth Rs. 50 lakh or more
• Purchase or sale of a vehicle, other than two-wheelers, worth Rs. 10 lakh or more
• Opening a bank account
• Depositing cash of Rs. 50,000 or more in a bank account
• Applying for a credit or debit card
The new laws also require individuals and businesses to link their PAN with their Aadhaar card. Aadhaar is a 12-digit unique identification number issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) to Indian citizens. Linking PAN with Aadhaar is mandatory for filing income tax returns, and failure to do so can result in penalties and legal action.

Follow the general instructions listed below while furnishing the digital signature application form:
• The signature of the applicant should be in blue ink only
• The signature of the applicant should be as it is in the Identity Proof
• A photo of the applicant in the application form should be signed by the applicant
• All supporting documents should be attested by either Gazetted Officer / Bank Manager / Post Master
• For proof of attesting officer, either one of the below is mandatory –
• Contact Details of Attesting Officer including the name, designation, office address, and contact number. This should be part of the attestation. If provided separately, it should be attested either by the Applicant or Attesting Officer
• Self-Attested copy of the Organizational Identity card of the Attesting Officer
• Organizational Documents can also be attested by Authorized Signatory. However, if the taxpayer fails to get the Organizational Documents attested by the authorized signatory, an attested copy of the organizational ID card of the authorized signatory is mandatory.
How Digital Signature work
Like handwritten signatures, digital signatures are unique to each signer. The providers of digital signing solutions, such as DocuSign, follow a specific protocol called Public Key Infrastructure (PKI). PKI requires the provider to use a mathematical algorithm to generate two long numbers called keys. One key is public, and one key is private.
When someone electronically signs a document, the signature is created using the signer’s private key, which is always securely kept by the signer. The mathematical algorithm acts as a cypher, creating data matching the signed document, called a hash, and encrypting that data. The resulting encrypted data is the digital signature. The signature is also marked with the time that the document was signed. If the document changes after signing, the digital signature is invalidated.
For instance, suppose that Jane signs a timeshare sale agreement with her private key. The buyer receives the document. A copy of Jane's public key is also sent to the document's purchaser. If the signature is not Jane's or the document has changed since it was signed, the public key will be unable to decrypt it using the cypher that produced the keys. The signature is then invalid. To ensure the integrity of the signature, PKI mandates that keys be generated, carried out, and stored securely. As a result, a reliable Certificate Authority (CA) is typically required. Companies that provide digital signatures, like DocuSign, address the PKI criteria for secure digital signatures.
