PAN Card Download – 4 Ways to Download e-PAN Card Online Via NSDL, UTIITSL, AADHAAR, and e-Filing Website

Updated on :  

08 min read.

The income tax department issues the Permanent Account Number (PAN), a unique 10-digit alphanumeric number. A PAN card is compulsory for all taxpayers. Apart from receiving a PAN card to your registered address, you can now download the e-PAN online.

What is an e-PAN Card?

The e-PAN card is the digital form of your physical PAN card. An e-PAN card is a virtual PAN card that can be used for e-verification. Your e-PAN will contain all your PAN details and can be stored on your computer or smartphone. 

Indian citizens and NRIs (including companies, NGOs, partnership firms, local bodies, trusts, and so on) must complete Form 49A to obtain a new PAN. Form 49AA is required for foreigners and foreign entities. These forms should be submitted to the Income Tax PAN Services Unit and all required PAN documents.

You can apply for an e-PAN via the NSDL or UTIITSL portal. You can also download an instant PAN using your Aadhaar card. The following details of the cardholder are mentioned in the e-PAN card:

  • Permanent Account Number
  • Name
  • Father’s Name
  • Gender
  • Date of Birth
  • Photograph
  • Signature 
  • QR code
