Is it possible to get PAN Number in one day? There have been announcements in the past that PAN number will be issue in 24 hours. Have there been any NRI who lives outside India and have got PAN number in 24 hours?
The short answer is - NO. It is impossible for an applicant living outside India to get PAN Number that soon. The process involves sending signed documents with photographs for processing.
PAN officials in India need to scrutinize the ID documents and validate that the applicant never received a PAN number before. There are paper-work to scan the signature, photo, and create an electronic version of PAN card with digital signature.
Though PAN officials take utmost care in processing those documents, it is common to see applicants complaining the documents were damaged or lost at the facility. Considering the complex process and thousands of documents collected in a day, it is a great achievement from PAN officials to issue PAN number in 7 to 10 working days for almost every applicant.
For foreign applicants, the success rate is better when having an agent representing on their behalf. The agent will submit foreign applications in-person and liaise with PAN officials during every stage of processing.
Residents of India apply directly through NSDL or UTI-ITSL. What about Non-Residents? When NSDL finds errors in application form or whenever NSDL has queries, the residents living in India can afford to visit PAN Office to respond to queries.

Overseas applicants do not like the uncertainty and it is not feasible to visit NSDL office if and when application gets stuck in processing.

Without a PAN Number, foreign companies could face deductions at a higher percentage rate. International companies furnish a corporate PAN number to manage taxes withheld & get invoices paid.
