What’s Inside

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. The answer to your question of "How to track PAN card delivery status online" is now easier than ever thanks to the online portal. You can login to NSDL (National Securities Depository Limited) or UTIITSL (UTI Infrastructure Technology And Services Limited) website and access the status of your PAN card in real-time. 

What are the steps to track PAN card delivery status online? 

You need to have an acknowledgement number called the application coupon number in the UTIITSL portal in order to track PAN card delivery status. You can also check the status through your Aadhaar number or Permanent Account Number (PAN) (if it’s for corrections). Your PAN status will be available after 24 hours of your application. 

However, the initial form to check your PAN status is slightly different for NSDL and UTIITSL. Let’s look at the differences:

  1. Visit the UTIITSL website.
  2. Under the 'PAN Card Services' tab, click 'Track Your PAN Card.
  3. You will get to the PAN card tracking window
  4. You need to enter any one of the following information to track your PAN card status: Your application coupon number or PAN Number.

  2. For a call - Dial 022-27218080 and provide your PAN acknowledgement number or application coupon number.
