Q: Who is eligible to apply for an electronic Personal Identification Number?

To apply for an e-PAN card, you need to ensure that you satisfy the following requirements:

  • You have to prove that you are eligible to have Indian citizenship.
  • You are required to be a taxpayer filing as an individual.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure that your Aadhaar card is connected to the cell phone number shown on it.

Q: I had a PAN card, but I cannot locate it now. Is it possible for me to get a new e-PAN using my Aadhaar card?

No. If you do not have a PAN number but have a valid Aadhaar card and have updated your KYC data, then you are eligible to utilise this service.

Q: What kinds of documentation will I need to receive a new e-PAN?

You would need to have your Aadhaar number, which must have all of your KYC data up to date, and a valid mobile phone connected to your Aadhaar.

Q: Who may use their Aadhaar number to apply for a quick e-PAN?

Applicants for a PAN card who already possess an Aadhaar number and have connected their mobile phones to their Aadhaar profiles are eligible to make an immediate application for an e-PAN.

Q: What should I do if the authentication I tried to use with my Aadhaar card during the e-KYC process was unsuccessful?

The attempt will most likely fail if the incorrect OTP is entered during Aadhaar authentication. It may be fixed by providing the correct one-time password. You will need to get in touch with UIDAI if the application is still declined.

Q: Do I need to do in-person verification for e-PAN?

Not at all; everything can be done in one convenient location online. There is no need for you to go to any of the centres.
