How to apply for new Pancard online [full step-by-step tutorial]

How to apply for a new Pancard Online

Our government has never been more digitally savvy than it is today, and that means that there are many important government functions that can be carried out online. A month ago, the government even launched a website to let all of us track the attendance of central government employees, and to see if they were arriving to work on time. With so many government services going digital, we believe that it’s important that our readers also know what can be done online, and how.

To start with, we’re taking you through the process of applying for a PAN card. In India, most important financial transactions require you to have a PAN card – it is used when opening a bank account, filing tax returns, or for financial transactions above Rs. 50,000. Having one of these cards is pretty much essential if you’re working and managing your own finances. [How to apply for a new Pancard Online]

Applying for a PAN is simple, and you can fill the forms online, but you’ll have to mail your documents to the Income Tax PAN services offices to finalise the process. Once you fill up the form on the site and send your papers, the application is processed and the card shipped directly to your residential address.

In case you get stuck and need more information, then the helpline number (18001801961) is a good resource – when we got stuck on some of the details of the application, we gave them a call and found the service extremely helpful.

Step one is to get copies of the different documents you need to submit on your application.

Documents Required …..[How to apply for a new Pancard Online]

To submit the application, you need to upload several documents to the PAN Services Unit website. You will need to upload a proof of identity, address and date of birth, along with a scanned passport photograph. Start by making a scan of any one document per section, for each section below:

    Its like you learn my thoughts! You seem to understand so much
    about this, such as you wrote the e book in it or something.

    I think that you simply can do with some % to force the
    message home a little bit, however instead of that, this is excellent blog.
    A great read. I will definitely be back.
