Where First five characters are letters, next 4 numerals, last character letter
One rule there the fourth character is choosen from a list Alphabates as bellows.

C – Company

Hence I will create a regular expression
as bellow

^[\w]{3}(p|P|c|C|h|H|f|F|a|A|t|T|b|B|l|L|j|J|g|G)[\w][\d]{4}[\w]$

Here I have a textbox and a regular expression validator in my aspx page as bellow.

<asp:TextBox ID="txtPan" runat="server" ></asp:TextBox>

        <asp:RegularExpressionValidator ID="RegularExpressionValidator1" 

            ControlToValidate="txtPan" runat="server" ErrorMessage="Invalid PAN" 

            ValidationExpression="^[\w]{3}(p|P|c|C|h|H|f|F|a|A|t|T|b|B|l|L|j|J|g|G)[\w][\d]{4}[\w]$"></asp:RegularExpressionValidator>
