  5. Correction - PAN of Authorised Personal Information of the correction and as per TRACES Profile should be same

    To resolve the error – “PAN of Authorised / Responsible Person as per Personal Information of the correction and as per TRACES Profile should be same. Please update the PAN of Authorised / Responsible Person in the correction file.” Please update Authorised Person profile on the main screen and also in Defaults -> Request for correction -> (Enter details of challan filed earlier) -> Personal Information. Enter the corrected data or select the check mentioning same as Traces profile, and submit for processing.
