The Finance Minister introduced a new facility in Budget 2020 where individuals can get instant Permanent Account Number (PAN) through their Aadhaar without submitting a detailed application form.

The facility was formally introduced by the Finance Minister on the 28th of May 2020.  The facility can be availed on the income tax department's e-filing website. Here is a stepwise guide on how to avail this facility of instant PAN allotment:

Requirements for instant e-PAN:

You are not required to upload any documents on the portal. The facility is available only to those who have never been allotted a PAN before.

In order to apply, your mobile phone number must be linked to Aadhaar number and the complete date of birth in DD-MM-YYYY format should be available on the Aadhaar card. This instant e-PAN card facility is not available to minors.
