In 2017 there were only 1,544 fake #PAN numbers according Minister of State for Finance, Santosh Kumar Gangwar, then @FinMinIndia, http://22.214.171.124/loksabhaquestions/annex/12/AU980.pdf

Some questions arising from his blog that I hope @ceo_uidai will clarify
Isn't it delusional to declare every person holding a bank account not linked to #Aadhaar a criminal?
