The Income Tax (IT) department now allows PAN card holders to use soft and hard copies as ID proofs. An order issued by the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) stated that both the e-PAN (electronically issued PAN cards) & physical PAN cards have to be treated at par.

At present, there are two bodies i.e. NSDL-TIN (National Securities Depository Limited) & UTI-ITSL (UTI Infrastructure Technology And Services Limited) that are authorised by the IT department to issue PAN cards to people. Both the bodies let PAN card holders download e-PANs from their official websites.

People who have applied for a new PAN card can download their e-PAN free of cost whereas others will have to submit a nominal price of Rs.8.26.
