The application for a new PAN may be done through the internet. PAN data changes and revisions, as well as reprints of PAN cards (for existing PANs), may all be requested over the Internet.
Online applications may be submitted using the NSDL site (https://tin.tin.nsdl.com/pan/index.html) or the UTITSL portal (https://www.pan.utiitsl.com/PAN/). For an Indian communication address, the fee is Rs. 93 (excluding GST), and Rs. 864 for an international communication address (excluding GST). The fee for the application may be paid using a credit/debit card, a demand draft, or via net banking. After the application and payment have been approved, the applicant must deliver the supporting papers to NSDL/UTITSL through courier or post. Only once the documents are received will the PAN application be processed by NSDL/UTITSL.
If the Address for Communication is listed as Office, individual and HUF applicants must present Proof of Office Address as well as Proof of Residential Address to NSDL for New PAN applications filed on or after November 1, 2009.
Organizations performing e-commerce transactions must present a PIN (Personal Identification Number) while completing a transaction online, according to RBI rules. As a consequence, before using a credit card, debit card, or net banking to pay for online PAN/TAN applications, the applicant must get a PIN from the bank that provided the credit card, debit card, or net banking.
