The NSDL website has this to say about applying for PAN Card On confirmation, and in case of credit card / debit card / net banking payment (on successful payment), an acknowledgment screen with downloadable acknowledgement receipt will be displayed. An e-mail containing this acknowledgement receipt (in PDF) as well as payment receipt (in PDF) as attachments will be sent to applicant's e-mail ID mentioned in the application. Applicant shall save and print this acknowledgment. You wouldn’t have deleted your emails, plus you would have received SMS updates too about your PAN Application. You actually do not need the acknowledgement or receipt. Your PAN Card will be delivered at the registered address. The acknowledgement number allows you to check the Status of your application online.
For convenience, there will also be an e-mail number displayed in the acknowledgement screen. How much does a PAN Card cost? PAN Card will be delivered once the acknowledgement and receipt are received. If you have a debit / credit card, the transaction will be charged in rupees (Rs). If you have a net banking payment, it will be charged only in rupees. If you are not sure, please contact our Customer Support at How will I know if my PAN Card has been sent?
