How to Track PAN Card Status online?

You can track the status of your PAN Card application at the NSDL site after you have filed an application for a new PAN card or for a duplicate PAN card or for a reprint of PAN card. You should track your PAN card status at least after 3 days of submitting the PAN Card application.

Details required for tracking the PAN Card application status:

1. Acknowledgement number of the PAN card application: A 15-digit unique acknowledgement number is provided after submitting the application for a new PAN card or Change request PAN application online. This acknowledgement number can be used to track your PAN card application. Or

2. Name and Date of birth: If you do not have the acknowledgement number then you can use your Name and Date of Birth details to see the PAN card application status.
