Permanent Account Number (PAN) is a unique, 10-digit alphanumeric identity allotted to all taxpayers in India, that is essential for undergoing various financial transactions such as receiving taxable salaries/professional fees, sale or purchase of assets, trading of mutual funds, etc.
However, in case you end up losing/damaging your existing PAN card, you can easily apply for a duplicate one.
Step-by-step guide to apply for duplicate PAN :-
First off, log on to the official website of TIN-NSDL, and head to the ‘Reprint of PAN card’ section.
Next, click on ‘Apply’ tab and choose the type of PAN you need a duplicate of, depending on whether you are applying for an individual/firm/trust/HUF etc.
Then you need to fill up details like your PAN number, name, address, email ID, phone number etc.
Duplicate PAN card application :-
Next, upload supporting documents, viz. ID proof, DoB proof, photograph, and a copy/proof of your existing PAN card that you want to reprint.
Then, make a payment of Rs. 110, through net-banking/debit card/demand draft.
Once the payment is done, a 15-digit acknowledgement number will be issued to you. And that’s all.
The dispatched PAN should reach you within two weeks.
