When a business applies for registration under GST, the application is processed by a tax officer. Once the tax officer approves the application, a confirmation email is sent to the registered email of the applicant. This email is sent from email – donotreply@gst.gov.in. The Subject of the email is “Intimation of GSTIN generated on approval of the application for new registration.” It contains the GSTIN, provisional username, and password with which the applicant can login into the GST Portal.
