Declaration for HUF pan card and bank account

HUF Formation declaration / Affidavit for PAN application 

Deed for HUF Formation

A Hindu undivided family or HUF is neither the creation of law nor of contract. The membership of a Hindu undivided family normally arises from birth. The only exceptions are in the case of an adoption or a marriage when a stranger may become a HUF member. There is nothing like HUF deed, as HUF is  comes into existence the moment you give birth to a child, In the eyes of Income tax law. (However as per Hindu Laws HUF automatically comes into existence when a person gets married.

A HUF is a separate entity for taxation under the provisions of the Income Tax Act, 1961 and HUF can have separate PAN (Permanent account number / Tax identification number). In order for an HUF to exist on Income tax records, HUF must have assets and have income from the assets. For taxation purpose new HUF must have two coparceners. 

Who can be a Karta?
Person who manages the affairs of the family is known as the Karta. Generally, the senior-most member of the family acts as Karta. However, a junior member can also act as Karta with the consent of the all other members.

Who can be a coparcener?
Those males & females who are within 4 degrees in lineal descendent from the common male ancestor can be a coparcener, however wife can not be a coparcener but she can be a member.  The coparcener must be a member of the family but a member of the family need not be a coparcener.
