I have been using a PAN no issued to me by IT dept since long.
Suddenly, without applying for another/new, I have received a new PAN number.
Now, my old number is also not visible on the IT portal and I can see the new number only. I have not linked any of the numbers with Aadhaar number, so far.
I wish to continue using my old number only as it has been submitted to various entities.
While I have sent reminders to IT dept with a request to deactivate the new number and allow me to continue with the old, I have not received any reply till date.
What should be my next course of action?
