    Change the date of birth

  2. Hello Harishchandra,

    You can follow the procedure mentioned in this article to change your date of birth.

  3. Want to change IT circle from bihar to UP

  4. You can mention the AO Code and relevant details of the new location in your PAN Card Change Request. Check the link given below to know your AO Code.

  5. Hi Anirudh,

    Just wondering if you could help out with this query:

    I wanted to update my communication address; but my change-request application was rejected because of a discrepancy in the address proof submitted. Now I am planning to submit a separate application later, after gathering the required proof document.

    My only concern is – will my existing PAN card and related records will have any problem, because of this rejection of change-request? My assumption is that my current PAN card will continue to remain valid, even if the change-request gets rejected, correct?

    Thanks in advance,
    James K

  6. Hi james,

    This rejection will not cause any problem in any of your PAN related documents and records. Its just that there might have been a discrepancy in your address which made them reject your application. Yes, your current pan card will remain valid till the change request is accepted by NSDL. If you still are in any dilemma, you can check your pan card details by visiting the link below.


  7. My name is Anju T. But in my voters id and aadhar card name is mentioned as Anju only… only in my matriculation certificate correct name Anju.T is mentioned…. if i apply for pan card with name Anju.T, will they reject the application..? plz reply soon….

  8. Hi Anju,

    Yes they will reject it as there is discrepancy in the name. I would first suggest you to change your name on aadhaar card using your Matriculation Marksheet. Once that is done, you will be able to apply for PAN Card. Nowadays if you have Aadhaar card, you dont need any other document to apply for a PAN Card.

  9. i request sir mera date of birth wrong ho gya h usko mai sahi krana chahta hu

  11. Hi Anirudh
    I would really appreciate it if you could help me with my query
    I have had a PAN card since 1996 when i first started working
    in 2003 i moved to New Zealand and lived there till 2011
    In 2010 i had renounced my indian citizenship and became a NZ citizen
    I came back to India in 2011 for family reasons and have been living here since then
    I applied for and got my OCI in 2011 itself

    Now my question is that the PAN card i already have shows my First Name and Surname only
    But all my other documents show my FIrst Name+Middle Name+Surname
    I had a few problems in abank as they said my passport and PAN card names do not match and that I should get the PAN card changed

    Can i apply for the change in name/name correction?

    or should i apply for a new PAN card number?

    what is the best way forward?
    Thanking you in advance

  12. Hi Alok,

    You must apply for change in name in your PAN Card. It is illegal to apply for a new pan card if you already have one. Do apply for change in name & Within 2-3 weeks you will have a new pan card with your changed name but with the same old PAN Number.

  13. Hi Anirudh,
    I’m having an query that I just want to change my residence address, is any there any charges for that..?


  15. i just want to edit my name before sending hard copy to it department.i tired changing name request but it happens only if you have pan number.so what shall i do.

  16. Hi Divyasri,

    You must contact the NSDL Helpline for the same.

  17. Hi Sanmitra,

    Yes, Fee of Rs.106 has to be paid.

  18. sir,I need to change my email id

  19. Hi Harish,

    Follow the procedure mentioned in this article and put a tick mark against the email coloumn.

  20. Hi Sir ,

    I have applied for PAN card for name correction and its stuck in income tax department. when I checked it in NSDL site it will give me “Your application for ‘New PAN Card or/and Changes or Correction in PAN Data’ is under process at Income Tax Department”

    I am not sure how much time it will take , do you have idea about it or process by which I can speed up the process.

  21. Hi Suresh,

    It usually gets updated within 10-15 days. Don’t worry you will be get your Pan Card soon. Sometimes, you even get the Pan Card and the status is still the same 🙂

  22. I have online applied for new pan card but email id and AO details filled wrong and payment has been made and acknowledgement has been generated now i want to make changes before sending the documents plz tell me wha is the procedure for the same.
    Thanks in advance

  23. Hi Altamash,

    You cannot make changes once the acknowledgement has been generated. Its better you post it as it is. The department mostly sets the AO as default by which they will automatically fill in the AO of your area. Email ID is just for notification purpose. You can track the status also by calling NSDL helpline.

  24. If I make correction in my PAN card it is necessary to surrender my existing PAN card.

  25. Hi Ram,

    No, the old PAN Card does not needs to be surrendered. However, it is advisable to cut it into 2 parts when you get the PAN Card with new details.

  26. is there any option to change the photo on pan card . plz send me the link and photo update process

  27. Hi Sreekanth,

    You can use the procedure mentioned in this article to change your photo as well.

  28. Hello Mr. Anirudh,

    My PAN card is very old and now I want to submit for Name change (post marriage name ) . I also want to change my sign to be in-line with my banks and other documents. I see that I need to submit my original PAN card as well along with other documents for that. Is that correct ?
    Please also let me know what does it mean by ‘Other Address’. My card was applied for from a very old address and I moved to a different city now. For ‘Other Address’ the site says ‘details of address be provided on an additional sheet’. Are they asking for an application to change the address on a plain sheet ?? Please guide.


  29. Hi Vibha,

    You can change your name and sign. For that you dont need to submit your old pan card. Just that when you get your new pan card, dont forget to cut your old pan card into 2 pieces so that it cannot be used any further.

    While filling up the form, You just need to tick mark against * marked mandatory fields and photo mismatch.

    Against the address for communication you need to fill in your new address which you need to update. Once all your details have been filled and payment has been made, you will get the acknowledgement form.

    Because I want PAN card 15 days later, i know new card might come in more than 15 days but If I have to send the original?
    Is there any urgent method?

  90. Hi Rohit,

    You dont need to send the original card to nsdl. You can discard your old card after you receive the new card. When you apply for a new pan card it takes more time. However, while making changes to the old card you will get an updated card within 15 days after NSDL receives your application. You can also track the status of your pan application online. Unfortunately, there is no urgent method to receive pan card.

    My query is – If i apply for sign change now, Can i use the previous card number till i receive my new card? Please help me with a solution !

  96. Hi Lucky,

    Your PAN Card number will remain the same. Just that your signature will change. You can use the same PAN Card till then. When you get your new PAN Card, you can submit the copy of the same telling that you have changed your signature.

  97. Hi S K Sharma,
