I have been given a requirement such as,
User should be able to enter his PAN card Number Or Security Answer which he entered during registration for Password recovery..
By default, PasswordRecovery template uses Security Answer to reset a password. Is it possible to change that as i said above??

You can implement your custom method to verify the PAN card number and invoke MembershipUser.ChangePassword() method to change the password. Something
public void customMethod(string pan)
//Query the DB and get the username by PAN
var user = Membership.GetUser(userName);
tempPass = user.ResetPassword();
Please 'Mark as Answer' if this post helps you.

Hope you didnt get my question.
The code you've given is for checking the PAN card detail in addition to security answer. But While putting PasswordRecovery, We need to have QuestionTemplate which verfies the Security Answer by default.(Which is mandatory). I need to have that event as
optional in the way that,
If(PanCard is correct)
//Send a password recovery mail
else if(security answer is correct)
//send recovery mail
Hope now clear?

If you implement the QuestionTemplate, you can't make that optional. Then you may have to use your custom control instead of the PasswordRecovery

As best practice and for security reasons, you passwords should not be recoverable. They should be one way hashed!
Then you can use the security questions to verfiy the user is correct before allowing them to reset the password or reset it using the system.
