Youth Congress organizes a open drive to issue PAN card

to the common man

A unique drive to issue PAN cards to the common man has been arranged by the youth congress in association with UTI technologies services limited, in Congress Office Mulund Gala Nagar from Tuesday 10th February to Sunday 15th February 2009 between 5:00am to 8:00pm. The highlight of the drive is that every individual who possesses a ration card, bank pass book, voter identity card, driving licenses or a passport can apply for a PAN card by producing any of the above documents.

M.L.C.,Charan Singh Sapra, who has initiated idea of the drive said " it had been observed that many agents were charging Rs. 250 /- to 300/- for making a PAN card. Further PAN card has now become a necessity for every Indian citizen as a proof of identity and since the issuing authority is the income tax department of the government. Thus we have initiated this drive in Mulund and will be conducting it in other suburbs as well in the near future"

Neena Desai, Asst Manager at UTI technologies services limited who is the coordinator for the drive said that " The UTI is committed to the cause of issuing PAN cards to every Indian citizen and due to this PAN card issuing drive it has become easier for us to reach the common man as we are serving them at their own localities at their door step"

Praveen Mookhey, vice president of the district Youth Congress explained," The drive has been widely publicized in Mulund through various mediums so that the message can be conveyed to every corner of Mulund. Furthermore, the program is being conducted on no profit basis since only Rs. 72/- is being charged for every PAN card [Rs. 67/- as Processing Fee & Rs. 5/- for Application form]

MLC, Charan Singh Sapra inaugurated the Drive to Issue PAN Card by filing the first 3 Apllication forms. Also presnt at the occasion were Congress Municipal councilor Dr. A.K.Sokhi, Sayed Ayub & Rajesh Ingle of Youth Congress, Kishor Mundekal of INTUC.
