Traders Protest Making PAN Must for Buying Gold Over Rs 1 Lakh

New Delhi, Mar 25 (PTI) Bullion market remained closed in the national capital today as traders refrained from doing business to protest the Budgetary proposal that would make it mandatory to quote PAN for purchases of above Rs 1 lakh.

"Making it mandatory to quote Permanent Account Number for purchasing gold above Rs 1 lakh is negative for the industry, which would drastically reduce their business," said a bullion trader.
