A PAN Card (Permanent Account Number) is mainly a ten-digit alpha-numeric number that is issued by the Income Tax Department of India. A PAN card is usually issued as a laminated card, which also has a copy of your passport size photograph. For all intents and purposes, a PAN card is a permanent identification number that is allotted to each “person”. Your PAN number will be your identifier with the Income Tax Department. Each person will have to use this alpha-numeric number for all future transactions with the Income Tax Department. A PAN card is usually used for transactions like tax payments, TDS/TCS credit, returns of wealth/gift/FBT etc. PAN card changes are updated in newspapers, and relevant Indian Government websites. You should know than NRIs are also eligible to apply for a PAN card. However, the rules applying to NRI PAN Card holders would be different from that of an ordinary resident of India.
A PAN is compulsory for those who have to file returns in India. In addition to this, a PAN card number has to be quoted for all financial transactions involving a large amount of money in India. Thus, if all or a portion of your net income is taxable in India, then it is mandatory for you to have a PAN card, even if you are an NRI. If you wish to purchase land or be a part of a financial transaction involving a large amount of money, then you will need a PAN card number.
The process to get your curated a check PAN card allotted to you is not all that complicated. However, before you begin your application, we have list of documents that you will require at the time of your PAN card application. Here is the check list:
The processing fee that you would have to pay for your PAN card is INR 944 (Application Fee: INR 85.00 + Dispatch Charges: INR 771.00 + 10.3% Service Tax). Remember that as of now, you cannot pay your processing fee using a foreign credit card. You will have to draw a demand draft (DD) in favor of “NSDL-PAN”, payable at Mumbai.
PAN card dispatch facility is available to you, if you do not have an address of residence in India. However, this is available only in select countries. Make sure you find out whether the Government of India can dispatch your PAN card to the country of residence before you apply. You could provide an official or residential address in the country of your residence, and the Government could be able to send it to you by mail, if your country is there in the list provided by the government.
PAN card applications have been made easier when the Indian Government introduced an online application portal. You will either have to fill out Form 49A or Form 49AA. Persons holding an Indian Citizenship need to fill out Form 49A. If you hold a foreign passport, you will have to fill out Form 49AA. Thus, OCI Cardholders, PIO cardholders are all eligible to fill out Form 49AA, while NRIs holding an Indian passport can fill out Form 49A.
