This process will allow you to request a reprint of your PAN card or update any errors, such as name, photo, date of birth, etc. incorrect.

The following steps are for PAN card revision or reprint for individuals only and may vary if you apply for a PAN card in other categories such as trust, company, or limited liability company.

How to change PAN card name online

This guide covers all kinds of corrections to your PAN card, including name changes. There are several reasons why you may need a name change on a PAN card, such as a wrong spelling, or if you have actually changed your name (maybe due to a wedding or any other reason). The method described below involves Aadhaar eKYC, so if your name is correct on the Aadhaar card, you can follow the steps below and change it on the PAN card.

Otherwise, you will need to submit documents showing that your name has been changed or misprinted. These documents include the publication of the name change in an official gazette, marriage certificate and wedding invitation (along with a document showing your spouse’s name) or other valid documents with the correct name, such as a passport. This document depends on the reason for your name change, and you will find out which one you need as you go through the process below.

How to request a reprint or revision of your PAN card online

These steps will help you submit your request to review or reprint your PAN card.

  1. You can get your reprinted or revised PAN card from NSDL or UTITSL websites. We did this through the NSDL website and the steps below will reflect that.
  2. First go to NDSL website. Click on the drop-down menu under type of application and select Changes or correction to existing PAN data / Reprint of PAN card (no changes to existing PAN data). Now fill in all the details, enter the captcha code and then click Send.
  3. In the next step, you can choose how you want to send your PAN documents. This can be done through an e-KYC that needs an Aadhaar card, by sending scanned images through e-Sign or by physically sending documents. We chose e-KYC through Aadhaar, so the steps will vary a bit if you choose one of the other methods. Fill in all the fields marked with a red asterisk (star) and then click Next.

  4. Enter your personal details in the fields marked with a red asterisk and click Next.
  5. Make sure all these details are exactly as mentioned on your Aadhaar card. If there is a mismatch, you will not be able to authenticate through Aadhaar until you fix it and only find out if there is a mismatch after paying. In case there is a discrepancy, you will get a refund, but to avoid this, double-check all the details right now.
  6. Now select the document you want to send along with your application. We clicked on eKYC, filled in all the details and then clicked Continue.
  7. You will now see the fee (excluding online payment charges). PAN card revision or PAN card reprint cost around Rs. 120 (all inclusive) for Indians and around Rs. 1,040 for those outside of India. Click Pay Confirm.
  8. Enter your payment details and complete the payment process. You will then see a page that tells you if the transaction was successful. If it was, you get a bank reference number and a transaction reference number. Save these two and then click Continue.
  9. You will now have to authenticate through Aadhaar. Under your Aadhaar number, tick the box and then click Authenticate.
  10. If your personal details match what is mentioned on your Aadhaar card, click Continue with e-Sign / e-KYC.
  11. Tick the check box and then click Generate OTP.
  12. Enter the OTP and then click Send.
  13. You will now come to a page where you will see your application form as it was submitted. Download this in PDF format and save it somewhere. You will also receive the acknowledgment of receipt by email.

That is the complete process to update or reprint the PAN card online. Once your application has been processed, your PAN card will be printed and shipped to your address.
