The Visakhapatnam district branch of State Government Pensioners’ Association has urged Deputy Commissioner of Income Tax M.K. Sethi to be considerate in effecting 20 per cent income tax recovery from pensioners that have no PAN Card.

The delegation that represented the issue to the official includes association district president D.D. Prasada Rao and general secretary S. Satyanarayana.

They also appealed to the pensioners coming under IT purview to obtain PAN Cards and furnish the details to the sub-treasury by December 25 to avoid IT recovery and penal interest.
