A taxpayer who wants to make payment of GST, Interest, Penalty, Fee etc needs to create a challan on the GST Portal. Any new or saved challan can be modified before generating the CPIN i.e. Common Portal Identification Number. A saved challan is valid for a period of 7 days.

What is CPIN, CIN and BRN?

CPIN i.e. Common Portal Identification Number – created when a challan is generated
CIN i.e. Challan Identification Number – created by a bank when payment for the challan is successful
BRN i.e. Bank Reference Number – transaction number created by a bank for a payment made against a challan

Can I cancel a GST Challan already generated?

GST Challan once generated cannot be cancelled. In such cases, do not make the payment. The challan would expire within 15 days from creation.

Can a challan generated from GST portal be modified?

Once a challan is generated online, it cannot be modified further and will be frozen. However, a tax payer can save the challan midway for future editing.

  1. Hey @HarshitShah

    GST refund claims must be filed within 2 years from the relevant date. If the claim is in order, the refund has to be sanctioned within a period of 60 days from the date of receipt of the claim.

    If a refund is not approved within the stated period of 60 days, interest at the rate notified must be paid in conformity with section 56 of the CGST/SGST Act.

    Hope this helps!

  2. Hey,

    Which form should be filed to claim a refund? And can I file for a refund offline?

  3. Hey @SonalYadav

    You can file for a refund both online and offline. A taxpayer can file for a refund by filing Form RFD-01/ RFD-01A. RFD-01 is an application for the online processing of refund under GST. It is to be e-filed on the GST portal. Whereas, RFD - 01A is the application form for refund form under GST for manual processing.

    Hope this helps! :slight_smile:
