Quoting of PAN not mandatory for certain categories of person – Rule 114AAB

The Income Tax Department has its own way of tracking the taxpayers details. One of the mechanisms is by making quoting of PAN mandatory in certain transactions. Section 139A (5) provides that the CBDT has the power to specify the classes of person where quoting of PAN is mandatory. CBDT has specified Rule 114B for specifying the transactions/ person where PAN is mandatory.  However, there is Rule 114AAB which provides for the class of person where PAN is not mandatory. It reads as under:
Class or classes of person to whom provisions of section 139A shall not apply.
