2.Foreign retail investors must have PAN for investing in Mutual funds.

Individual foreign investors seeking entry into Indian stock markets will now have to acquire Permanent Account Number, or PAN, the passport to all financial transactions. The mandatory PAN was announced recently by the finance ministry while outlining the framework for foreign retail investment in mutual funds, a promise made in the February budget.

“The Central Board of Direct Taxes, the apex direct taxes body, will soon issue an instruction in this regard,” a finance ministry official said. However, to ensure that the requirement does not make investing cumbersome, PAN will be issued on the basis of know your customer (KYC) scrutiny of the investor. KYC conditions prescribed by the market regulator, Sebi, are quite stringent making them PAN plus, said the official.
