    If anyone has lost or forgot his email Id which he registered his PAN at that time & we don’t know his PAN login password then what we can do to obtain a password because your system will send the password on registered EMAIL ID which I forgot. Plz reply as soon as possible.

  • Sunny Shah says:

    As a professional associated with this field , I would like to raise a question in contaxt to the given change.
    1) My client filed his last return in 2010
    2) Being a layman he doesnt have the proper information about his last return.
    3) The password was set by some chartered accountant who is out of India.
    4) As he is required to file his return , he want me to file his due return.

    How can I retrieve the password?
    I have all the details of the person , but considering the current change it is impossible to file return online.
