Pan Card for Minor in India

My Daughter got her Pan Card issued on  at the age of Four Month and Nine Days (09 June 210).

By far this has has been the most wonderful experience of mine dealing with any government agency or should I say the only agency which offered a truly world class service experience.

I applied pan card for my four month old daughter (Tisya Singhal) online through NSDL. The form seems to be very simple and self explanatory. As my daughter is minor Pan was applied on her behalf by representative (her mother)

The fee for the pan card is Rs 94 . You have the option to pay through Credit or Debit Card / DD  /Cheque. The best mode of payment is Credit/Debit card as this beside expediting the process also give online status of your application using a 12 digit acknowledgement number issued on successful transaction.tisya-singhal-pan-card-for-new-born

A printout of acknowledgement need to be send to NSDL Pune with photograph and address proof within 30 days.

In case of any queries you can also call up NSDL call center at Pune (020 – 2721 8080) . I called them up twice , once while filling application and again checking the status of the application. The staff was extremely polite and helpful on both the occasions.

I received a SMS from NSDL on receipt of the application and again on confirmation of issue of the pan Card (whole process took less than 15 days) . Today the update on NSDL site shows that the PAN has been dispatched to our  mailing address through overnite courier.

A quick check on ovenite courier website says the courier has reached Delhi on 14th July from Mumbai. So hopefully We’ll get the Pan Card for Tisya tomorrow.

Next on agenda is to get a Passport for Tisya and that thought sends a shiver down my spine. To know why read my experience in getting my passport reissued

Update (July 13, 2011) : I applied for passport for my minor daughter under Tatkal and got it within 4 working days.

  1. Hi Amit

    After submitting the online form the PAN application needs 2 photograph. One photograph box says “Signature/ Left Thumb Impression across this photo” and there is a box asking for “Signature/ Left Thumb Impression of Applicant”. what do we need here? Signature of “Guardian” or thumb impression of the “Minor”.

  2. Nice article on your experience to get the PAN for your daughter. I am applying now for my kids and your info is very helpful.

  14. Hi Amit, I m a single mother n i don’t want to mention father’s name in the PAN CARD form. Is it possible to take Pan Card n Passport easier for my daughter.

  15. Hi,
    Have you used her PAN to invest in mutual funds? I am facing a conundrum where AMFI norms say that to invest in mutual funds KYC needs to done. Howeever it also says that KYC is not necessary for minor but guardian’s KYC needs to be done.
    So if I attempt to use my daughter’s PAN while applying for Mutual Fund units, it says KYC not done. But if I try to do KYC, it says not necessary for minor!!
