MISMATCH DURING PAN VALIDATION – VALIDATION ERROR (VAT to GST Migration)

After GST Application submission, we got an email saying”MISMATCH DURING PAN VALIDATION WITH CBDT DATABASE”. When we checked up the “Know your jurisdiction” PAN database in Income Tax website, we found that First name of applicant was not entered.Only Surname was given in PAN database.Since first name is mandatory for GST Registration, the application is showing validation error after submission because of mismatch in first name of applicant.

Since Updating PAN Details with CBDT takes time , kindly advise us  an alternative solution on how to complete the registration .(Last date being 31.01.2017)

    This is due to Name (Surname, Middle Name and Last Name) mismatch between what you entered in GST portal and Income Tax portal.

    Step 1
    1. Go to Income Tax e-filing portal.
    https://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in/e-Filing/UserLogin/LoginHome.html
    2. Go to Know your jurisdiction in Services menu
    3. Type your PAN Number and get Surname, Middle and Last Name and make note exact spelling of these names

    Step 2
    Go to GST portal
    1. Remove your entered name
    2. Add new with exact names as per the Income tax portal
    3. Save and Submit
