Because the PAN card is a very vital document these days, it is imperative that you keep track of the status of your application. And finding your pan card status is really easy, thanks to the initiatives of the Income Tax department and the two organizations in charge of handling all PAN related matters. The current status of your PAN card can be known from both UTIISL and NSDL websites, where you may have applied initially.
There are provisions on both these sites to not only check the status of your PAN card but also make changes or corrections, if any are required. You can also seek a reprint of your PAN card or apply for a new PAN using the same interface. For finding the status of your pan card, you need to click on tab named ‘Status Track for PAN Application’.
This will open a page wherein you can track your permanent account number card application status. Here you need to choose the application type and the acknowledgement number you had received when you had completed your PAN application online. You also need to submit your full name and date of birth.
Then click on the ‘submit’ button and the status of your PAN card will be there for you to see. You must enter your name as it was written in the application. Moreover this status tracker will work only after three working days have passed following the day of the application.
Thus all you need to track your PAN card status is a PC with internet connection. Now that you have learnt how to get your PAN card status online, you may also be able to solve the problems faced by your friends and colleagues trying to know where their PAN application stands.
Remember that you can check the status online, as many times as you want until the delivery of the card. But once you receive an SMS confirming that your card has been dispatched to your address, you really do not need to check the status of your PAN card anymore.
This is because after receiving the dispatch-confirmation SMS, it is only a matter of days before you have your permanent account number. In case you do not have access to a computer with internet connection, you can easily go down to your nearest PAN allotment center and enquire about the status in person. This can be of great help if you are not very tech-savvy or have such as center very near to where you live.
