PAN Verification failed

If you get an error message like this, you can update your PAN directly in the UAN portal. Once you have submitted the PAN for verification, it would be sent to Employer for the approval. After approval by Employer, it would be approved by the PF field office (where the jurisdiction of your PF will come)
