Form 60 is a declaration to be filed by an individual or a person who does not have a permanent account number (PAN) and who wants to open an account or make cash payments. It is a mandatory document required from an individual to carry out financial transactions when the concerned person doesn’t have a PAN Card. Form 60, however, should be supported by a relevant address and identity proof.
