For fast tracking the allotment of PAN and TAN to company applicants, Digital Signature Certificate (DSC) based application procedure has been introduced on the portals of PAN service providers M/s NSDL eGov and M/s UTIITSL. Under the new process, PAN and TAN will be allotted within one day after completion of valid online application.
Similarly, a new Aadhaar e-Signature based application process for individual PAN applicants has been made available on the portals of PAN service providers M/s NSDL eGov.
The URL links for the above applications are available in “important links” on the homepage of the departmental website “incometaxindia.gov.in”. Introduction of Aadhaar based e-Signature through M/s NSDL eGov in PAN application not only ensures paperless hassle free PAN application process but also seeding of Aadhaar in PAN which will curb the problem of duplicate PAN to a great extent.
