What is an e-PAN?

The Indian Income Tax Department has recently introduced an e-PAN card. It is the instant allotment of PAN to first-time taxpayers.

This has been done after an increase in the number of people applying for PANs.

It is important to note, that it will not be allotted to a person who already holds a PAN.

Currently, ePAN is only being issued to individual taxpayers.

This facility is free of cost and is available only for a limited time period.

ePAN will be issued on a first-come-first-serve basis.

It is a digitally signed PAN card issued in an electronic format by using Aadhaar and e-KYC. However, it is as same as physical form and will be considered as an actual PAN card.

You can download e-PAN using the PAN application Acknowledgement number, generated at the time of Application

But, nowadays if you apply for PAN, you will receive PAN card in physical form & in electronic form too.

You will get your e-PAN through your registered email ID.

The new e-PAN will have the same name, date of birth, gender, mobile number and address as in the Aadhaar database.

The e-PAN facility is only for resident individuals and not for Hindu Undivided Family, firms, trusts and companies.
