    brunt of the tax, in case your employment period
    is less than five years.

    withdraw money before five years of service with
    the current employer, then you will fall in the
    tax slab. 10 of TDS will be deducted. If PAN is

    that you are withdrawing.

    that UAN is seeded with PAN card, Aadhar card,
    and bank account. This will simplify the process
