Getting a PAN card has gone easy with time. Previously, we had to reach NSDL center to obtain a PAN card but now you can apply for it directly via filling an online form.
In online application, the first section is for filling Accessing Officer or AO details. This is the most confusing part, but don’t worry as we tell you how to get correct AO detail for your location.
First, check this great link by TIN (Tax Informative Network). It has all information regarding the AO details for all places in India.
Once you reach here, navigate down to see ‘Search on City’ option. Then choose first alphabet for your city. You’ll see a list of cities, select your city and all AO details within your city will get displayed.
Now you must correctly identify the AO location under which your application falls. By default, its the first one in the list.
