The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has extended the requirement of Permanent Account Number (PAN), for more transactions as part of its efforts to closely monitor economic activities. As per this, cash deposit or withdrawal exceeding ?2 million in one or more bank account or post office in a financial year would need to quote PAN or Aadhaar.
