A PAN card is one of the most important documents. Without this, you cannot operate your bank accounts and Demat accounts or file Income Tax Return (ITR). In such a situation, on the death of the holder, first of all, close all the accounts linked to him. After that surrender the PAN card of the holder by applying to the Income Tax Department.
