Lost you PAN Card some where? Do not worry. Getting hold of a replacement PAN card (or a duplicate PAN card) is as easy as applying for a new PAN. And what’s more, you can do it with a few clicks on your computer.
Replacement PAN card application
Just visit this page and proceed to the bottom of it to select the appropriate category.
Before you do that it is advisable to carefully read the Instructions. For your convenience, I’ll mention here the two most important points to note while applying for a replacement card.
- If all the data in your lost PAN card is correct and you are simply applying for a replacement card, fill the complete form without selecting (ticking) any box that are present on the extreme left, except for item number 7, which remains selected by default.
- If you are instead applying just to make any corrections to your existing PAN card, fill out all the mandatory fields (those marked with a star) and select only those boxes that are present on the extreme left that corresponds to the filed in which you wish to make the corrections.
After completing all the fields and making the payment online, you will be allotted a unique 15 digit number using which you can track your PAN card status after 3 days from the date of application.
If you prefer the paper mode, you will have to download the correction form (change form) from http://www.incometaxindia.gov.in/Archive/ChangeForm.pdf or by visiting a physical Office of UTI or NSDL TIN in your area.
