can I use epan for signature verification for my nmat exam?
Hope you are doing well.
You may not be aware that you may also use an e-PAN card for transactions.
Permanent Account Numbers may now be obtained online!
e-PAN is now valid in order to obtain a Permanent Account Number, according to a document published by the Income Tax Department's Tax Information Network. This is due to amendments to clause (C) of subsection (8) of Section 139A of the Income Tax Act of 1961 and rule (6) of Rule 114 of the Income Tax Rules of 1962, according to the document.
According to the department, an e-PAN card is a PAN card that has a digital signature and is issued in an electronic version rather than a paper one. By using Aadhaar e-KYC, one may get an e-PAN.
It should be mentioned that after submitting an application, the applicant will be provided with a 15-digit acknowledgment number. As soon as the online PAN application is successfully filed, a unique number is assigned to the applicant. Using this phone number, you may also keep track of the e-Filing Portal.

i have ews certificate so can i attach ths certificate for nmat registration form it will b work or not??
Hi, so basically NMAT exam i.e., MBA entrance exam which is conducted by GMAC i.e., Graduate Management Admission Council doesn't provide any sort of reservations.
So sorry to tell you that your certificate won't work for this exam. Alot of other exams provide reservations, following are some of them:
- CAT which have 10% reservation for EWS candidate
- IIFT which have 10% reservation for EWS candidate
- MAH-CET which have 10% reservation for EWS candidate
You can apply for any of these exams. Also, NMAT don't provide any kind or reservations to anyone so the completion level is basically same for every body.
So I'd suggest you to prepare the best for your exam and do your best.
Hope this is helpful.
