Permanent account number, which is widely known as PAN Card is an identifier which is issued by the Income Tax Department. Any person can apply for a pan card but must not be a minor. The Income Tax Department issues the designated person or whomever they allot the number without any application. Income tax department issues this PAN Card under the supervision of the Central Board for Direct Taxes. 

These PAN Cards are not acceptable as a nationality proof because these are also given to the foreign investors who have valid visas. PAN Card is only important when it comes to payment of income tax.
