D.O.No. ITD-CGA/07-1 1/GPF-MIDS/Pt.file Ill! 76 -
Dated 05, December 2013
Please refer to this office's DO letter of even no. dated 28 " Feb 2013
regarding updation of General Information (GI) of all the GPF subscribers with their
PAN in GPF Module of COMPACT for implementation of the e-Samarth application
for all the PAOs.
In this connection, the Controller General of Accounts has reviewed the
status and expressed his unhappiness on the low percentage of GI data updation.
It is not possible to launch eSamarth application due to non- completion of updated
data. The status of the GI data Updation with PAN for the PAOs under your
administrative control as on 05.12.2013 is attached for your perusal.
As you may perhaps be aware that the eSamarth application would not only
depict the current status of GPF account but in future it would also give information
regarding long term advances like HBA, MCA, etc.
As PAN number is a mandatory requirement for issuing Unique IDs, you are
once again requested to give the matter its due urgency and look into it personally
to give suitable directions to the PAOs under your administrative control to
complete the work of updation of GI data with PAN by 20" December 2013 without
fail. In case, any subscriber of GPF does not have PAN, s/he may be advised to
get it issued from the Income Tax Department immediately.
