    From were can we get original circular no. 11 dated 16.01.2014. As per press release dated 30th January 2014 the aforesaid procedure for PAN allotment has been kept in abeyance till further orders. But at Patna the NSDL centers are not obeying this press release as the same has inadvertently dated as 30th January 2013

    Then what about the online filing of PAN application. How to deal with online filing as in that case we dont need to go to tin door step. Who will verify the POA POI DOB documnets.
