Basics of PMT-06

What is PMT-06?

The PMT-06 challan has to be generated before making payment of the net tax liability by the registered person. Once the details are entered on the challan, a Challan Portal Identification Number (CPIN) is generated on the GST portal. Upon the payment, a Challan Identification Number (CIN) is shared by the bank for any mode of payment such as online or over the counter. The CIN needs to be mentioned back in form GST PMT-06 (challan).
The challan in PMT-06 once generated would be valid for only 15 days to complete any pending payment, if any. A registered person can submit the challan application on the GST portal within 24 hours of paying tax. If the concerned bank does not share the CIN, a complaint would be forwarded by the GST portal to the concerned bank, and an intimation would also be provided to the registered person.
