Verify PAN Sync

Use this PAN verification API to verify if a given PAN exists. You will receive the name registered with the PAN and the PAN type (Individual or Business) in the response for valid PAN.


Verify PAN for Free!

You can verify your beneficiary PAN details for free using Free Credits. With this limited-time offer, experience and test the feature without paying any verification charges.

A banner displays the offer for you on the Verification Suite - PAN page (Verification Suite Dashboard > Verification Suite - PAN). Click Claim Free Credits and instantly redeem the credits to your account.


Name Match Feature

To manually check if the provided customer name and the name registered with PAN are the same, consumes a lot of time and effort. Cashfree Payments has introduced a new feature that will help you to verify if the names are the same and provide the result accordingly.

Two new parameters, nameMatchResult and nameMatchScore will be available in the response, which will help you make faster validations and process payments successfully. Click here to know more.

Contact your Account Manager or write to [email protected] to activate the name match score feature for your account.
