Whether it’s an order from our favourite shopping app, food delivery, or a new PAN card application, we want to know when it will be delivered.
Knowing the status of my PAN card helped me plan my bank account application when I was a teenager. I was able to check my PAN card status online and was happy to know that my PAN application was accepted. Wasn’t that great?
You, too, can track PAN card status by logging into NSDL (National Securities Depository Limited) or UTIITSL (UTI Infrastructure Technology And Services Limited) website or searching for the following keywords on the Internet: “track pan card status NSDL” and “UTIITSL pan card status tracking portal”.

You can change your details and share supporting verification documents, and you will get a new PAN with the modifications in place. You can apply for a digital PAN or both digital and physical cards.
