This facility is for allotment of Instant PAN (on the near-real-time basis) for those applicants who possess a valid Aadhaar number. PAN is issued in PDF format to applicants, which is free of cost.
The applicant is required to type in her/his valid Aadhaar number and submit the OTP generated on the registered mobile number. Once the process is complete, a 15-digit acknowledgment number is generated. Once the request is submitted, the applicant can check the status of the request at any time by providing her/his valid Aadhaar number and on a successful allotment can download the PAN. The applicant will also receive a copy of the PAN in the e-mail id registered with the Aadhaar database.
2. The salient points of this facility are:
The applicant should have a valid Aadhaar which is not linked to any other PAN.
The applicant should have his mobile number registered with Aadhaar.
This is a paperless process and applicants are not required to submit or upload any documents.
The applicant should not have another PAN. Possession of more than one PAN will result in a penalty under section 272B(1) of the Income-tax Act.
Fill in your Aadhaar in the space provided, enter the captcha and confirm.
