Updating dsc 2016 online applications
Once the application has been submitted online a hard-copy of the application and the supporting documents must be submitted to the PAN Centres of the respective service providers.
If you make an application through one provider’s portal, you cannot submit the documents to the other provider.
Since that blog post was published, Microsoft has released another version of the Pull server which I’ll refer to as version 2.
It is crucial that you gather all these documents before you initiate the process of applying online because all the details in the PAN Application should exactly match the details mentioned in the supporting documents.
Many people submit the PAN application first and then gather the documents.
Interestingly, PAN applications have been updated recently to incorporate the facility of using Digi Lockers to fetch documents for attaching them to the online form as proof of identity, address, and birthdate.
Digi Locker is Indian Government’s initiative to provide Indian citizens a secure digital electronic space to store the documents.
