Dear Gowtami, I am never suggest to use your hostel address as a office address while you are applying for PAN. So you should use your home address as a permanent address. however you should hold any address proof of such address other wise your PAN application will reject by the dept. However still you want to use your hostel address as a office address than you should hold any address proof of such address. Any other query feel free to contact us. Writer CA Chitranjan Agarwal
Hi Gowtami, Whether you can state the address of your college hostel as your office address for applying for a PAN card, the answer is it would depend. Kindly note the following: **Address - Residential and Office** Residential Address: For Individuals, HUF, AOP, BOI or AJP, residential address is mandatory. Office Address: Individuals having source of income as salary or Business / Profession can provide Name of Office and address of the office Kindly note: It is necessary to mention complete address and the mandatory to provide details of Town/City/District, State/Union Territory, and PINCODE. **Address for Communication** All communication will be sent at the address, you can choose either Residential Address or Office Address. In case of Individual, if one chooses Office Address as Address for Communication, then Proof of Office Address along with Proof of residential address is mandatory. Based on the presumption, that you are a student having **NO** source of income as salary or Business / Profession, you **cannot give** college hostel as your office address for applying for a PAN card Regards
