Interchangeability of PAN and Aadhaar
PAN and Aadhaar can be interchangeably used while filing of the ITR.
In other words, Aadhaar number can be used instead of PAN in various schedules in ITR. For example: –
- Tenant details in Income from House property.
- Auditor details while filling Audit information.
- Details of Key Persons such as trustees, Directors, KMPs.
Retired Government employees having pension income
Earlier, the government employees were bifurcated into the ‘Central Government’ and the ‘State Government’. Now a new option ‘Not Applicable’ has been added so that employees who were earlier in government jobs and now have retired and are receiving pension income can use this option.
Electricity bill, Foreign travel, and Deposits in the current account
If any person is not liable to file ITR but is filing ITR because he has: –
- Deposited more than 1 crore in one or more current accounts
- Made foreign travel expenditure of more than 2 Lakhs (self or for another person)
