Scope of Rule 114B regarding furnishing of PAN in certain transactions extended

As per the new amendment in rule 114B of Income Tax Rules, now PAN will also have to be furnished in respect of payment of LIC premium of aggregating Rs. 50000 or more in a year. PAN will also be required to be furnished while making payment to a dealer of Rs. 5 Lakh or more or against a bill of Rs 5 Lakh or more for purchase of bullion or jewellery. The word Dealer has been mentioned in newly added clause (r) to Rule 114B, but who will be considered as dealer is a question to be asked, since no corresponding explanation defining the word dealer has been added in the rule.
