Application for fresh allotment of PAN can be made through Internet. Further, requests for changes or correction in PAN data or request for reprint of PAN card (for an existing PAN) may also be made through Internet.
Online application can be made either through the portal of Protean (formerly know as NSDL)
(https://www.protean-tinpan.com) portal of UTITSL
(http://www.utitsl.co.in/utitsl/uti/newapp/newpanapplication.jsp). The charges for applying for PAN online are the same i.e. Rs. 94 (including service tax) for Indian communication address and Rs.944 (including service
tax) for foreign communication address, i.e. there are no additional charges. Payment of application fee can be made through credit/debit card or net-banking. Once the application and payment is accepted, the applicant is required to send the supporting documents through courier/post to Protean (formerly know as NSDL)/UTITSL. Only after the receipt of the documents, PAN application would be processed by Protean (formerly know as NSDL)/UTITSL.
