    Please let me know for applying the duplicate pan card.

  2. Hello Pallabi,

    You must follow the procedure mentioned in this Article to get the duplicate Pan Card.

  3. AmazingIndia is really amazing. Very nice blog and very useful information. With the help of your post I got information for applying PAN card. Thank you !!

  4. Hi Baibhav,

    Thanks that you liked my blog and the information in it ! 🙂

  5. Do i still needs to send the hard copy if i had paid fee through online ?

  6. Hi Srikanth,

    Yes, you just paid the fee online. How about the documents ? NSDL also needs your documents to process your application.

  7. How long it take to get a duplicate pan card ? Any idea..

  8. Is aadhar card considered as valid id proof

  9. My aadhar card and my current address are different. Can i give current address proof without it getting updated against my pan? My original pan card had my permanent residence. Pls help..

  10. Within 15-20 days after you post the documents to NSDL

  11. Hi Richa,

    To get a pan card, if you have aadhaar card you dont need any other document. Only an aadhaar card will do.

  12. Hi Richa,

    While applying for re-issue of pan card, it is mandatory to provide your current address proof. Current address will be on your pan card and you cannot give any other address. Anyways, the address is not displayed on the pan card so it hardly provides any value.

  13. Hi, this post is informative.. Thank you..
    I had a follow up question.. What happens to the lost PAN card?? How do we ensure it is not misused??

  14. Hi Jose,

    You must file an FIR at the nearest police station for any of lost document.

  15. For sending acknowledgement and documents, should I use normal post? or I can send it by speed post.

  16. Hi Umesh,

    It is advisable to use speed post/ registered post/ courier so that you can track your application.

  17. What are the list of documents required to apply for duplicate pan card?

  18. Hi Psy,

    You dont need any document for a duplicate pan card(If you have the same address otherwise just an Aadhaar Card will do). Just your application form with your signature.

  19. I have lost my PAN card and i also want to do some important data correction in it . What should i do?

  20. Hi Alok,

    You must go ahead and apply for change in your Pan Card details :

    Read this : http://amazingindiablog.in/pan-card-change-request-procedure/

  21. I guess the pan card is sent by a courier . Do I need to be physically present to receive my pan card or can someone collect the card on my behalf?

  22. Hi Ajay,

    Yes they usually send it by Bluedart or Firstflight. No, anyone can collect it on your behalf, just like a usual courier.

    Note : Only Credit Cards are given only to the person on whose name it is issued.

  23. Hi,
    Thanks for your blog. I read somewhere that there is a reprint of PAN service for people who are outside India. I lost my PAN Card but remember my PAN Number. I can apply for reprint, but can I apply from outside India and provide my German Adress. Will PAN India post my PAN Card to Germany Address?

    Thanks,
    Vivek

    3. How much time will it take to get the re-issue the card in both the scenario ?

    3. Re-issue of PAN Card does not take more than 20-25 days after receiving your application.

  40. Dear Anirudh Singh,

    I have a PAN card issued 20 years earlier and then I left to United Kingdom. I thought I have not applied for PAN card earlier and hence applied for new one. Now, I came to know that it has already been issued to me. I do not have PAN card but I remember the PAN number. Now, my dilemma is whether to apply for new NRI PAN card via form 49AA or just apply for the rectification of the old PAN number with change of address [new UK address]. Please advise.

    plz reply me ……

  44. Hi Mani Kant,

    You can directly apply for it. But it is a good practice to file an FIR for lost PAN Card so that if someone tries to misuse it, you are not liable for it.

  45. Hi TUSHARAKANTA,

    You can apply for reprint of pan card. You need to mention your old pan number and the new address in the application. You will get the pan card at your new address.

    I have done the procedure but after making payments I don’t know what happened, page breaks and site says no transaction history. I am realy in tension please help me out. What should I do. I didn’t even get the acknowledgemeny number after payment.

  54. I have an adhaar card with different address with respect to the place where i live now. so should i avoid giving the adhaar card as a proof ?

  55. Hi Asif,

    You should give the proof which has your current address only. As your aadhaar card bears other address, you must not use it. You can either use any other proof or you can change your address in aadhaar card and then use it.

  56. thank you bro very useful information i got

  65. Hi Anirudh

    I lost my wallet containing all my ID proofs except the Passport.But the Passport is having my old address.So Can u please tell what should I do so that the PAN card will get delivered to my current address?

    Thanks

  66. Hi Deepika,

    You need to provide your Current Address Proof as a document to get your PAN Card at your current Address. Nowadays if you have Aadhaar Card, it is sufficient document to get a PAN Card. Also read : http://amazingindiablog.in/what-to-do-if-your-wallet-is-lost-or-stolen/

  67. Does the original and duplicate PAN card look same?; I mean do they mention “DUPLICATE” in the subsequent issued PAN card?

  68. Hi K M Jacob,

    There is nothing called as a Duplicate PAN Card. Its actually a Re-issued PAN Card. So, you would get exactly the same PAN Card as before.

    Since, I am not living on my permanent address, that is why want to ask to change the communication address.

  74. When I checked through the UTI site, there is NO particluar option to reapply for lost CARD. There is a general “Apply for New PAN”

    Does it come under that?

    Also when you select that there is an option to upload scanned copy of your supporting docs, picture and signature and also AADHAR detaisl. If this is done, is it not required to mail the hard copy?

    Thanks in advance!

  75. Hi Anirudh, there has been a change in NSDL for reissuance of PAN card. Unfortunately NSDL instructions are also as per old website – which mentions not to select anything on left side check boxes. New form does not have nay left margin. Gentle request to update the blog with latest information. It will also be helpful to mention about other agencies like e mudhra etc which also offer this service , pro cons of using these agencies etc.
    All in all Hearty congratulations to you for starting such a blog which provides the useful information in such an articulate manner.

  76. Hi SNagar,

    There is a slight change in the URL which points to the page on the OLD website only. I have made those changes now. As well as I have mentioned about the Paperless DSC Application. I know there is also a new website for PAN Application, I am in the process of Updating the Same in my New Blog Posts. Anyways thanks for Pointing out the issue. Upon your demand, I will consider writing about other services as well.

    Thank you so much for appreciating my work. God Bless you 🙂

  77. Dear Sir,
    Today i lost my all documents, starting from my matriculation certificate to my aadhar card, pan card, voter id card and etc.
    I know my pan number.
    If l will apply for new pan card then they ask for supporting documents which has also been lost.
    So please tell me the procedure to approach for pan card, aadhar card and all?

  78. Hi Jai,

    You can download your E-Aadhaar Card First. Follow these articles :

    1. http://amazingindiablog.in/how-to-know-aadhaar-number-by-name-email-address-or-mobile-number/
    2. http://amazingindiablog.in/how-to-download-e-aadhaar-card-with-aadhaar-number/

    Once you have E-Aadhaar, you can get your PAN Card with it. These days you can get a PAN Card only with Aadhaar Card. Same way you can get rest of the documents.

  79. Hi Anirudh,

    I want to display my fullname in pan card. How should i proceed. Do i need any documents for that?
