    • To do a compliance check on the Income-tax reporting portal, you need to have a valid TAN. Because 206AB and 206CCA both are related to TDS. So first register yourself on the income tax portal as a tax deductor using your TAN and add the PAN of the Authorized person.

      after successfully adding PAN on the Income-tax portal you will be able to log in on the Income-tax reporting portal using the pan of the authorized person and can check the compliance of any of the PAN holder is single or if you have more than 1 PAN then you can use bulk option.
