ePAN is a virtual PAN card that carries the PAN data of the cardholder. It may be downloaded from either the NSDL or the UTIITSL portals. It holds the cardholder's PAN and may be used for any e-verification that requires a PAN card.
To apply for an e-PAN card, an applicant must meet the following requirements:
ePAN may be acquired from the NSDL and UTIITSL portals online. Applicants who previously applied for a PAN using the NSDL portal can now get an ePAN from the same site. If they wish to download the ePAN through the UTI site, they must first apply for a PAN card reprint through the UTIITSL site, or they will be unable to get the ePAN. The same is true for UTI portal candidates.
All new applicants or applicants who have asked for a change in the PAN data within one month after the issuing of the PAN can get ePAN for free. For each download request, UTIITSL levies an extra price of Rs. 8.26 (including taxes). This payment may be made online, and the applicant can access the ePAN whenever he wants.
There are two ways to download the ePAN from the NSDL portal:
- After one month of application, whether for a new PAN card or corrections/modifications to an existing PAN card, NSDL does not enable customers to download ePAN.
- Applicants can choose not to get a printed copy of their PAN card and instead apply for an ePAN while filling out the form, both new and corrected. In such circumstances, the email address to which the ePAN will be transmitted must be specified.
UTIITSL is an alternate gateway via which applicants may apply for new PAN cards or make changes to existing PAN cards. Applicants who applied through UTIITSL can access their ePAN online. There is no additional price if the ePAN is downloaded within 30 days of the PAN card's issue.
The ePAN may be downloaded from the UTIITSL site by following the steps outlined below-
Step 1: Go to UTIITSL's ePAN downloading webpage for the UTI e PAN.
Step 2: Enter the necessary information, such as PAN, date of birth/incorporation, GSTIN (optional), and security code, and then apply.
Step 3: Verify that the mobile number and email address shown against the PAN are accurate, then input the security code and check the declaration box.
The user is given the choice of sending the OTP to a cell phone number, and email address, or both. An OTP is sent to the specified source.
Step 4: Enter the OTP and press the submit button.
Step 5: If the PAN issuance duration exceeds one month, the customer will be requested to pay Rs. 8.26 online.
Step 6: If the processing is completed, the user will be able to get the ePAN online.
Step 1: Go to UTI Infrastructure and Technology Services Limited’s official website and search PAN card application page.
