Govt to issue new look, tamper proof PAN cards


Tamper-proof ID cards play a critical role in high security identification processes. This paper introduces different card printing technologies, security features and considerations when creating ID cards.
The Government is issuing newly designed PAN (Permanent Account Number) cards that have added security features to make them tamper-proof and with contents written in both Hindi and English, a senior Income-Tax Department official said on Friday.
The distribution of new-look PAN cards, being printed by NSDL and UTIITSL (UTI Infrastructure Technology and Services Ltd), started since January 1. The cards are being issued to new applicants but existing ones can only apply for them. "The distribution of new PAN cards kicked off on January 1. However, these are only for the fresh lot of PAN card applicants," the official said.
"We have automated the data and made the PAN cards error-free," he said, adding, "In case existing cardholders apply for a fresh PAN card, they will be issued the newly designed cards."
Keeping in view the Rajbhasha policy of the Government, we have made fixed contents of the new PAN cards bilingual in which the headers are in English and Hindi, he said.
The Government has added a new feature to the card, known as Quick Response Code, which will help in verification process.
The code will help in providing all details of the cardholder in one go as when the document is produced before any authority. Hence, no room will be left for the cardholder to either tamper or give any kind of wrong information relating to the card, the official said.
PAN cards are mandatory for any transaction above Rs 2 lakh and for a lot of other activities like opening of a bank account and as identity proof. There are currently more than 25 crore PAN cardholders in the country.
As per Government estimate, every year 2.5 crore people across the country apply for PAN cards.

Seniority list as on 01.01.2011

Dear friends, 

TOO MANY SENIORITY LISTS ... TOO MANY GRIEVANCES ... STOP IT.. 

Fine and wish the same from you. Kindly find the attachment which is self - explanatory on the above said. This is also  totally a defective one wherein so many senior colleagues are affected going back to the juniors. Hence, I request you all to go through the same and come up with your objections/ comments/ omissions and the same may be brought to the notice of your Circle Head for rectification. Unless otherwise this seniority list is corrected/rectified we would not have thought of RRs/DPCs for Gr.I at Circles and regular promotion to Gr.I to PS. I have spoken to Shri. Rajiv, Director (SPN) in this regard and requested him to come up with a fresh and fair seniority List without any grievance. Here, all the C.Ss also play a vital role to take up the grievances to the respective Circles.     

With kind regards,

Murugadas, 


G.S., AIPSA. 

LPG customers to now get a discount for on-line payment of LPG refill


WLPG customers to now get a discount for on-line payment of LPG refill


Oil Marketing Companies, viz IndianOil, BPCL & HPCL are now offering an upfront discount of Rs 5/- on every LPG refill to all LPG customers who will book and pay for their LPG cylinders online. Customers can make payment through existing online modes i.e net banking, credit & debit cards at the time of web-booking their refills.

Customers will get the discounted amount displayed on their screens – i.e. net amount i.e refill RSP minus (-) incentive amount of Rs.5/- which they need to pay for their refill transactions. The net discounted amount will also be shown on the cash memo accompanying the home-delivery of the LPG cylinder.

Under the aegis of Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas, it the endeavour of all Oil Marketing Companies aim to encourage consumers to increasingly shift to such payment modes through digital platforms to achieve the objective of no-cash or less-cash based transactions. The incentive will encourage more and more LPG consumers to go for cashless mode transactions.
