Employers required to collect PAN of the lender banks from the employees to claim Interest in House Property in the salary return

The Finance Act, 2015 had introduced a new section 192(2D) of the Income-tax Act, wherein the employer was obliged to collect the necessary evidence or proof in Form 12BB  to allow any claim for any deduction and/or tax saving investments.

One of the requirements in Form 12BB for claiming the interest on house property is to provide the PAN of the lender i.e. the financial institutions, NBFC or others from where the loan is taken, if available. Though the same is not a mandatory requirement in Form 12BB, the same has been made mandatory in the Annexure-II required to be filed in the salary return -From 24Q for the last quarter of the financial year. The same was made effective from 1st June 2016 by the CBDT by way of its Notification No. 30/2016 dated 29 April 2016.

In case the PAN is not available, no deduction of interest shall be allowed and the total tax deduction of the employees shall be higher than previously deducted.
