How Can You Get a PAN Card in 48 hours?

A PAN card is one of the most widely used formal documents. It is mandatory to submit a PAN card to file an IT return, open a bank account, buy a new asset such as a car or a house, for accommodations, trade & purchases, or even for transactions exceeding a particular amount, among many other uses.

To apply for a PAN card, an applicant needs to fill Form 49A (for Indian citizens) or Form 49AA (for Foreign citizens) and submit it to the concerned authorities, along with the supporting documents and a PAN card fee. Earlier, after the submission of the PAN card application and completion of documents for verification, it takes around 15-20 working days to issue a PAN card. Now, the government has cut short the process and introduced a fast track process through which the applicant can receive their PAN card within 48 hours or in 2 days after the PAN application submission.

This blog will take you through the process of applying for a PAN card in 48 hours along with other requirements to be followed.

How to Apply for a PAN Card in 48 hours?

However, with some modifications made and the PAN card fast track process implemented, the applicant can now receive a PAN card in 48 hours or 2 days. Following are the steps to be followed to apply for a PAN card in 48 hours-

  • Visit the official website of NSDL
  • Choose the relevant form, read the guidelines carefully and select the type of form (with or without a digital signature certificate)
  • Now, enter the type of applicant, fill the entire form and submit the supporting documents
  • Upon submission, the applicant will receive an acknowledgement number that can be used to track the PAN card status

What is a PAN Card Acknowledgement Number?

When an applicant submits the PAN card application, a unique 15 digit number is generated against the PAN application and allotted to the applicant.
