Correction in a PAN (Permanent Account Number) card refers to any changes or updates that need to be made to the information already provided in the PAN database. This may be necessary in case of errors or changes in personal details.
There are several types of PAN correction applications in India, depending on the nature of the correction needed. Here’s a breakdown:
Fill out the ‘Request for New PAN Card or/and Changes or Correction in PAN Data’ form. This can be done either online through the NSDL or UTIITSL website or by obtaining a physical form from a PAN service centre.
Attach supporting documents for the correction. For instance, in case of a name change, provide a copy of a name change affidavit, marriage certificate, or gazette notification.
Pay the requisite fee for processing the correction request.
Submit the application form along with the documents. If applying online, you can submit the form electronically. For offline submissions, the form and documents need to be submitted to a PAN service centre.
After submission, an acknowledgment number is provided which can be used to track the status of the application.
Once processed, the updated PAN card is dispatched to the applicant’s address.
