At least I was notified that I was--and that was after midnight, too--and that it is supposed to turn up in the mail.
My notification stated:
The Income Tax Department takes pleasure in informing that a PAN has been allotted to you.
It only took five months and two tries ("seven to ten days", ha!).
Such efficiency don't you think? Especially for people who want you to pay the taxes that pay their salaries.
