Change/Correction PAN
Form 49A
PAN Application
UTIITSL
Last updated on April 3rd, 2021

The Permanent Account Number (PAN) is one of the most important documents which is an identity proof. Therefore it is imperative that the information provided on the PAN card is correct or accurate. However, there are cases where the information printed on the PAN card is false or incorrect. In such cases, the applicants can apply for a change/correction in their PAN card through the UTIITSL portal.

There are many cases where individuals have more than one PAN. For instance, if an individual loses his/her PAN card and wants to reissue, but there are discrepancies in the address. In such cases to avoid the hassle involved in applying for re-issuance with an address change, sometimes a person may apply for a new one and end up having two PAN cards and thus has to surrender the duplicate PAN.

  4. Hey @SonalYadav

    To get an e-PAN or a PDF version of PAN card - you can:

    • Apply for a reprint of your PAN card (not a new PAN)

    Steps to apply for Reprint/Duplicate e-PAN via NSDL website

    • Visit NDSL portal → New PAN application page

    • Select option for Application Type → Changes or Correction in existing PAN data/ Reprint of PAN Card & Category as applicable(Eg. Individual, HUF, Firm, LLP, etc)
    • Fill out personal information in corresponding fields, go next
    • Temporary token number will be generated for your application, which you’ll use throughout the process (Note down this temporary token number) & Click Continue with PAN Application Form.

    Note: If during the application process the session times out or you wish to continue later - you can click on Registered user tab and use your token number to resume the application

    • Select mode of submission for application documents, there are three ways -
      • Digitally (through e-KYC & e-Sign, using Aadhar)
      • Scanned images through e-Sign on C-DAC or NSDL
      • Forward application documents Physically

    Among these options, e-KYC through Aadhaar is the easiest, since you don’t need to submit further documents as proof of your identity and your e-KYC is completed using Aadhaar OTP.

    • Under the mode of delivery → select e-PAN option
    • Enter Aadhaar details (Recommended, not mandatory) and complete other personal details like gender, parents name, etc.
    • Next, enter only your mobile number and go next - there’ll be options to change details. If you are applying for a reprint you won’t need to change them as you just need a reprint.
    • Complete the declaration and upload the list of documents.
      • copy of your PAN card as proof of PAN
      • Address proof,
      • identity & Date of Birth (Aadhar by default for e-KYC)
    • You’ll see a summary of the application before the final submission - review the details and confirm the submission.
    • Pay application fees - to mention a mode of payment via which you’ll complete your application (Demand Draft/Online Banking, Cards)
    • Enter the OTP sent on your Aadhaar registered mobile number to verify the details.

    It usually takes 15–20 days to receive the duplicate PAN card.

    Track your PAN application using Check PAN Card Status tool

    You also get an instant e-PAN from the Income Tax Department.

    Following is the sample of an e-PAN:

    Hope this helps!

  5. Hey @HarshitShah

    Go to Know Your PAN and enter your Name, Date of Birth and mobile number to fetch your PAN details from Income Tax database.

    Or, you can get your old PAN Number from:

    • Previously filed ITR (Income Tax Return)
    • Request your bank to provide you with your PAN number, that you linked with your bank account.

    Once you fetch your PAN number, you can apply for a reprint of your PAN on Quicko or on NSDL website - refer Team Quicko’s answer to How can I get a new duplicate copy of my pan card

    [1] Duplicate PAN Application for Residents - Plans by Quicko

  8. Hi @Pearl

    The Income Tax Department of India does not provide any procedure to delink your Aadhaar with PAN Card. However, you can submit a grievance on the Income Tax E-filing Website for delinking of PAN and Aadhaar in the following cases with the prescribed documents:

    • PAN Card is inadvertently issued to more than one applicant and the Aadhaar Card of one applicant is linked with the PAN Card of the other.

    • An assessee has more than one PAN and Aadhaar Card is linked with the deactivated PAN Card

    • If the Aadhaar Number of one applicant is linked with the PAN Card of another person due to various reasons.

    Hope this helps :slightly_smiling_face:

  9. Hey @jonu_dsa,
    PAN and Aadhaar linking might fail incase the details such as name and DOB are not matching. In such a case, you’ll have to get your PAN/Aadhaar updated with the correct details and link them.
