PAN Application by NRI-Non-Indian – Difference
An NRI as well as citizens of about 105 countries (Non-Indians / Foreigners)) can hold Indian Pan Card . There are following apparent differences in the PAN Application by NRI-Non-Indian (Foreigner) :-
2. NRI pancard may be delivered at Indian as well as his/her abroad address. Whereas in case of Non-Indian applicant, his / her pan card will be delivered in his/her country only. However, delivery can be made in India if such foreigner is under employment in India.
3. Due to costly postal charges, pan application fee for Non-Indians is very high. For example – www.etdsdsc.com and www.pancard.org.in are charging Rs. 1,500/- for Non-indians. Whereas this rate is only Rs. 190/- if delivery is taken in India by an NRI.
4. NRI can use any ID proof allowed to Indian Applicants (if delivery is taken in India) and therefore, there are plenty options with an NRI but the Non-Indian Applicants have very limited options for ID proofs.
