UTI Infrastructure Technology and Services Limited also has a portal to make a status inquiry for your PAN card.

You can enter your request for a status inquiry for your PAN card on the NSDL website 24 hours after submitting the PAN card application online.
UTIITSL also has a tracking page to make a status inquiry for your PAN card. Here, you must enter the type of application you have made. A drop-down list offers a choice between different application forms. You also need to enter your application number or coupon number.
