Earlier in Goods and Service Tax (GST), if the Challan is wrongly paid or the amount is paid under wrong major head (CGST, IGST, CESS and SGST) or a minor head (Tax, Penalty Fee, Interest & others), it could not be used in discharging the liability under different head. Due to which the taxpayer has to generate new challan and bring another amount of cash. To provide relief to taxpayers from this problem, CBIC has introduced Form GST PMT-09. It is now available in GST Portal.
Form GST PMT-09 enables taxpayers to transfer amount available in Electronic Cash Ledger from one major/ minor head to another major/ minor head. Hence, if the taxpayer has wrongly paid challan, he can now rectify the same using Form PMT-09 by reallocating the amount in GST Portal.
