Can an application for PAN be made through Internet?

                     Yes, 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 NSDL ( pan/index.html) or portal of UTIITSL ( utitsl/uti/newapp/new-pan-application jsp). Currently, the charges for applying for PAN online are the same i.e. ` 96/- ( ` 85/-is application fee and ` 11/- is the service tax) for Indian communication address and ` 962/- ( ` 85/- is appli-cation fee, ` 11/- is the service tax and ` 866/- is the postal charge) 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 re-quired to send the supporting documents through couri-er/post to NSDL/UTIITSL.
