    • Neha,

      For name change in PAN, my wife was asked to show her Marriage Certificate. In that the after marriage name was mentioned.
      This was considered as proof for name change.
      If this is not applicable to your case; i would suggest to get in touch with near by PAN office.
      They can guide accordingly.
      All the best. Please share your feedback.

  4. Hi,
    In my PAN, my first name is wrongly given as last name and vice versa. I would like to change it. For providing proof of name, my last name is expanded only in passport. My driving license, voterid has only the initials. Please let me know, even to update this, should the ID proof and address proof have same name as I would request in the form.

    Thanks in advance,

    • I think passport will suffice for id card and others for address proof.
      I am sure though, but you can check once with a nearest center. Just carry all documents and submit whatever is required. All the best. :-)

  7. Everything is perfect in my PAN card. But my addrees has changed and only the address has to be updated in their database. So when I update my addy ..will they just update the addy in their database or will they issue me a whole new PAN card all over again ? I don’t see the point in issuing a new PAN card when you just update your address, as there is no address on the PAN card anyways..shouldn’t they just update the addy in their database and nothing more ?

      • I have raised an online request in March 2013 to update the address on my PAN card. But it has not been processed. They are saying that some old update request is pending on the PAN card. But I have not raised any update before this.

        I have even asked them the details of the previous pending request, but they are not replying anything.

        So what should I do?

    I need to change my signature in the PAN card. However is it possible that they compare the old signature with new one? Because I need to change only my signature and nothing else, so is the form you given here is suffice for signature change also?

  17. Hi. I have lot of queries pertinent to PAN Card.
    My maiden name was Anika punjabi and I also had pan card with the same name earlier. Then I got married and my name was changed to Anika mistry. I also got the pan card amended with the new name.
    Also pls note I have 2 bank accounts one with maiden name and the one with new name. And both the banks are askin me to update the pan card no for KYC.
    Now my question is can I update my older account( one with maiden name) with the Pan no. Since the pan no in both the cards is he same. Will there be a discrepency if I use the pan card with new name for older bank accounts.
    2 secondly to add more complexity to it. I’ve lost my both pan cards recently. Now how to apply for issuance of the lost card. And whether I should request them for issuance if two pan cards I.e. One with maiden name and one with new name. Or just for one pan card with new name. Pls help. I’m in a big dilemna.

    • Anika,

      1. For now, i would suggest you to get your PAN card issued in the new name.
      2. You can then update the bank details as per details in PAN card mentioned in #1 (the one with new name).
      3. Regarding your bank account with maiden name; probably you can get a name change done there as well. Get it updated as per your new name to keep everything in sync.
      All the best. :)

      Salutation is not printed on PAN card; so you should be good with any.
      In case you’re filling manual form, you may try to strike ‘s’ from Mrs.
      Just my thought; not sure if it works.

    • Sandeep,

      I am afraid this is not a PAN service center.
      Its a forum where we share our experience so it can help others with the process.
      You can go through the post and see if it helps you.

    • Hi,

      You must enquire at the place you submitted the application.
      I did the same in my case.
      All the best. :)
