CPIN under GST Tax system in India


How does CPIN work under GST Tax system in IndiaWhat is CPIN number under GST in India? How many digits are there in CPIN? What is the validity period of a CPIN number? How to obtain CPIN under GST payments?

The full form of CPIN is Common Portal Identification Number. The CPIN is issued at the time generating GST tax challan by online. As we have discussed in other posts, GST tax challan is prepared by online and such GST tax challan can be saved temporarily without instructing for generation of final GST challan. However, once after finalizing the tax challan after cross check and scrutiny, the tax payer can submit such challan draft for generating GST challan. After submission of such data for GST challan, GSTN (Goods and Service Tax Network) generates challan bearing a 14-digit unique number to identify the challan.

A GST challan is valid for 15 days and automatically cancels after validity period. The tax payer can either pay GST tax with such challan bearing CPIN within validity period of its generation or he can request for a fresh GST challan online after providing necessary data for GST generation.

Here, the details about CPIN is explained. If you would like to express your thoughts about CPIN under GST in India, please comment below:
