The most important thing to do in such a situation is to stay calm. It’s very natural for one to panic when you lose such an important document, but stressing about it isn’t going to help you. Stay calm, and try to find it. If you’re sure you’ve lost it, immediately go to the nearest police station and file an FIR regarding your missing/stolen PAN card.
This is an extremely important step to avoid your PAN card being misused for fraud. This FIR will save you from falling into any trouble, in case your PAN is used by some fraudsters. Now move on to get your duplicate PAN card issued.
