Panwar joined Odisha FC from Hyderabad FC ahead of the 2021-22 season. Panwar, too, made an impact for the side during their Super Cup triumph last season. The left-back was a regular player for the team in his first two seasons before the arrival of Jerry Lalrinzuala in the 2023-24 season. Panwar made 45 appearances for the Kalinga Warriors across all competitions.

In addition to his defensive responsibilities, he showcased his ability to contribute offensively on overlaps. He recorded three assists, all during the 2022-23 season, and scored his only goal for Odisha FC against Maziya S&RC in the AFC Cup this season.
