Online Application for Reprint of PAN Card by NSDL

There may be times when an entity needs to get a duplicate PAN card. This may occur in situations when the original PAN card is misplaced or lost and the cardholder no more holds a physical card. In such cases, the application form remains the same, that is, form 49A. The various fields are filled in the same way as the above listed steps for application of new PAN.
A few documents need to be attached with this application. These are proof of address, proof of identity and proof of date of birth.
NOTE:An important point that needs to be taken care of while filling any of the application forms for PAN is that the field, ‘Name’ in the application form should match exactly with the name in the submitted documents. Any discrepancy in this leads to rejection of application.
