Apply for PAN card - Online Application Form

The Permanent Account Number (PAN) is a unique ten-digit alphanumeric number issued by the Government of India to all tax payers. It is a universal identification tool that tracks all financial transactions taxable by the Government. This permanent number assigned to the PAN holder serves as an essential ID proof. It is allotted to each tax payer by the Income Tax Department of India under the supervision of the Central Board of Direct Taxes. The PAN does not change during the lifespan of the PAN holder.

Alankit receives PAN applications on behalf of NSDL through its country-wide chain of TIN-Facilitation (TIN-FCs) and PAN centers. PAN applications can also be made through Alankit’s online facility.
