    Thanks Ashal for your update.

    I had applied for PAN card details correction via online and send the documents tomorrow. Once my process will get completed, I’ll share my experience also.

    Hope that will give more clarity on this issue 🙂

      Hey what happened to your issue after that? Did pan card number also change?

  4. Dear Nagarajan, no the PAN ‘l not change. it ‘ll remain same. Only the data ‘ll change. How is it possible?

    Let me share you an example –

    Say an unmarried lady with surname ‘Verma’ is having a PAN. Now She got married & post marriage her new surname is ‘Sharma’.

    In this case, post marriage her name on record as well as on PAN ‘ll change but her PAN ‘ll not chnage.

    I know this from my personal experience for my friend’s wife. Similar ‘ll be your case. The name ‘ll change but PAN ‘ll remain same as it’s permanent to you.

    Thanks Manish …

    But what about my existing reference wherever I used my current PAN number (tax filing, bank, mutual funds, form-16. etc ….)

  6. Yes , the fifth char is the first letter of the name . the Pan card will surely change !
