What does the Alphanumeric Number of 10 Digit in PANCard mean?

I have already mentioned that the PAN Card has an alphanumeric number of 10 digit which hides a lot of your information like AAECC6548c . The first five letters are English alphabets,

Next is a 4 digit number and at the end there is an alphabet again. All of these points have some meaning and represent important details of the person. Let’s get to know what all these points mean


The first tin characters. The first three letters are of a normal alphabetic series, which is used from a To Z, such as AZT or Zrt.
Fourth letter. The fourth letter describes the position of the holder of the Card.
This is the most important letter in this Card that identifies a person’s status. The fourth letter is the letter “P” which means “person” on the number of most PAN holders. The other 9 characters that describe the fourth character are as follows

A – Association of Persons

B – Body of Individuals

C- Company F- Firm


H- Hindu Undivided Family

L- Local Authority

J – Artificial Juridical Person

T- Trust

Fifth letter. If PAN Card personal then the fifth letter person’s last name or surname’s first letter is like Pratik Jain is the name
So the fifth letter on the number of the PAN Card will be “J”. And if the PANCard is for a trust, organization, company, government, etc., then the first letter of its name is in the fifth letter.
Six to nine characters. These four letters are four random numbers from 0001 to 9999.
