You can do in five steps

Parents or guardians of a child can apply for a PAN card on behalf of the minor. The Income Tax Department has not set a minimum age requirement for acquiring a PAN card. 

A minor’s PAN does not contain their signature and photo and cannot be used as an identification. According to reports, the minor has to submit an application for a PAN card update after turning 18.

  • Step 1: Go to NSDL’s Online PAN application portal.
  • Step 2: Enter the required details required for filing Form 49A, and upload the minor’s birth certificate and parent’s signatures.
  • Step 3: Click to submit after making a payment of ₹107.
