State Bank of India (SBI) enables its customers to add their PAN or Permanent Account Number card details to their bank account online. SBI customers - holding one or more bank accounts with the bank - can register their PAN with their bank account(s) through its internet banking facility, according to a video tutorial shared by the country's largest bank on its website. In other words, the customer is not required to visit a bank branch in order to feed the PAN card details into their internet banking profile with SBI. State-run SBI provides internet banking facilities to its retail customers through its portal, onlinesbi.com. The customer is required to log in to the internet banking portal in order to register the PAN details, according to SBI. PAN is a 10-character alphanumeric identification number assigned to assessees by the Income Tax Department.
