        • HUF Affidavit is mandatory with the application of PAN for HUF.

          HUF Deed is like a partnership deed which contains a lot more information than an affidavit. You may or may not prepare a separate HUF deed. For the ones who do not prepare a separate HUF deed, an affidavit will serve the purpose of the deed as well as an affidavit.

          Hope that helps.

          • Yes, that helps, thank you! I googled to see what a deed looks like and noticed that many people are sharing the affidavit format as a sample deed. I spoke to a couple of friends who did HUF long ago and neither did a deed. I find many recommendations on creating a deed, but nothing concrete on why it is beneficial and definitely no sample.

  3. Nice information for HUF & PAN – HUF. My recent huf pan card is spoiled then how can one apply for new huf pan card with some corrections in un availability of huf deed ? Is it mandatory to mention all members of family in affidavit ?
