Here, I will help you to find out those websites and guide how to apply a new PAN card online and also how correct the wrong information of a PAN card online. If you are an individual and looking for PAN card then follow as below mentioned:

- Then collect all the supporting documents that you have mentioned while filling the form and send them to address mentioned in that form with the filled up form.
