What is a PAN Card?

PAN – Personal Account Number – is the system which the Indian government and tax authorities use to track what income tax you are paying and to track financial transactions within the country.

Information on a PAN Card

PAN numbers are allocated by the Income Tax department of the Indian government. Every one is different, and each person has just one PAN. All PAN forms are online to make registration easy. As your PAN Card is unique to you, the number won’t change if you get married and change your family name or move house. PAN Cards can’t be used as proof of Indian citizenship, but as the card carries your photo it’s a widely accepted form of identification.

You’ll need to show your PAN card for most financial transactions in India. You’ll be asked for your PAN card when you’re opening a new bank account, selling or buying property, receiving a salary from your employer or as a contractor, or buying other high-value items. Although it’s not a legal requirement to have a PAN card, in practical terms it’s almost impossible to live and work in India without one. Companies and other institutions also need to apply for PAN cards to help them move money legally around the system.

PAN isn’t the same as the Aadhaar biometric ID card. If you have an Aadhaar already, fill in the appropriate section on the PAN application to link your two records together.

Getting Your PAN Card

The easiest way of getting a new PAN card is by using the online forms. The website enables you to complete the forms online, and then scan or upload the documents you need to support your application. This means scanning and uploading a photograph, your passport, a copy of your signature and other identity documents such as your residence visa or employment contract.

Separate forms need to be completed depending on whether you’re an Indian citizen or foreigner, so take care to fill in the right form as getting it wrong can mean your PAN card takes a lot longer to issue. Make sure also that you’re selecting the right category for your application; most applicants will select the “individual” category. Corrections and requests for duplicate PAN cards can also be managed online.

If you are in India, you also have the option of going to your local PAN service centre, where an advisor can go through the application process with you, and help with any questions about supporting documents.

How Long Does a PAN Card Application Take?

Assuming you’ve filled in the form correctly and completely, and attached all the correct supporting documents, it should take between 2 and 3 weeks for your PAN card to arrive in the post.

Why Do I Need a PAN Card?

We know that form-filling and wading through bureaucracy can seem pointless and a waste of time. However, if you want to have a job, open a bank account or even have a mobile phone contract in India, you have to get your PAN card. The PAN card carries the unique number which the Indian tax authorities use to identify you, and if you want to work and pay tax legally in India, you can’t get by without one.

Who Needs a PAN Card?

People from other countries living in and working in India will need a PAN card too, not just Indian citizens as PAN cards are needed when you’re opening a new bank account or getting a new mobile phone contract. If you’re buying air tickets over a set value or buying a property, you’ll also need to show your PAN card. The only exceptions to needing a PAN card are workers in the country for a short period only who aren’t required to pay tax in India. If you’re a business owner of a company with a turnover equivalent to around £10,000 or more annually, the company needs to register for its own PAN card too.

Applying for your PAN Card

There are two different ways in which you can apply for a PAN card. The first option is to go to one of the Tax Information Network (TIN) information centres which are located in almost every large Indian town or city. An advisor will talk you through the application process and advise on which supporting documents you will need. If you’re already living in India and don’t like the idea of applying online, this is a good option.

The other application method is through the online portal. This is a better option if you are still planning a move to India and trying to get your paperwork in order before you arrive. Register with the government website to get your user ID. Head to the section for PAN applications, fill in the form, scan your supporting documents and upload them and then submit the application with your payment. PAN cards can be sent out to an overseas address, but this will cost more than having it posted within India. Even if you’re already in India, using the online portal to apply for your PAN is often more convenient as the website is open 24 hours a day, allowing you to make your application at a time which is convenient for you.

Using your PAN Card

PAN cards will have both your signature and your photo on them. PAN cards are widely accepted as a form of identification, and you’ll often be asked to show the card rather than just quoting the number. You’ll need it when you start a new job or open a bank account, so it’s best to keep it with you at all times.
