How to Surrender PAN Card?

The Income Tax Department (ITD) issues a Permanent Account Number (PAN), an alphanumeric identifier in card form, to individuals upon application. Each PAN allotted and PAN card issued remains valid for a lifetime. However, in cases where PAN holders lose or damage their PAN card, the ITD provides a duplicate PAN card.

There are two methods to apply for a Duplicate PAN card:

  1. Online Method: This method involves applying for a duplicate PAN card through online platforms provided by the ITD.
  2. Offline Method: Alternatively, individuals can apply for a duplicate PAN card through offline channels, typically involving physical forms and submission at designated centers.

In certain scenarios, individuals may inadvertently possess more than one PAN. For example, if someone loses their PAN card and intends to reissue it but encounters discrepancies in their address details, they might apply for a new PAN instead of rectifying the existing one. This can lead to the issuance of multiple PANs, which should be avoided to prevent complications and ensure accurate tax reporting.
