Well, PAN is permanent account number which is unique to every citizen of india and there is no expiry date of PAN card respectively. Only, if you lost or missed the PAN card, some amount will charged for the new PAN card.
PAN obtained once is valid for life-time of the PAN-holder throughout India. It is not affected by change of address or change of Assessing Officer etc.
No, it does not require any renewal. If at all it is damaged, misplaced or lost you can go for applying the duplicate PAN Card.
@madhuri N Marne Dear Madhuri ji, In my opinion, PAN does affect with the change of address if it goes beyond your current jurisdiction and so it needs to be amended if your address change results in your jurisdiction change. For Example, if you are currently living in Delhi and now your address changes to Assam then YOU HAVE TO GET YOUR PAN UPDATED WITH AS PER YOUR CURRENT ADDRESS. THANKS!
