Duplicate PAN Card Application

March 25th, 2019 in PAN

A duplicate PAN card is a document which can be issued from the Income Tax Department by those individuals who are unable to access their original PAN card.

 

 

1. About Duplicate PAN Card

Permanent Account Number (PAN) card is a mandatory document required to pay taxes in India. A PAN is a unique identification number which is allotted to individuals with a validity of a lifetime. PAN acts as the identity proof of Indian citizens and helps in carrying out numerous personal and business-related financial transactions throughout the nation. In case, the PAN card of an individual becomes inaccessible, s/he can apply for a duplicate PAN card.

A duplicate PAN card can be used in cases where the original PAN card has been lost, damaged, or misplaced. An application can be filed to the Income Tax Department which will then issue the duplicate document to the individual.

Situations in which an individual can apply for a duplicate PAN card are if the original document is:

  • Lost or Stolen
  • Misplaced and Forgotten
  • Damaged or Destroyed: In case, the PAN card has been damaged, it can be reprinted if it is still in printable condition.
  • Requiring Information Change: In case, the originally entered information in the PAN application has changed with time, it can be updated and the PAN card can be reprinted.
