Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

CPIN stands for Common Portal Identification Number. The 14-digit CPIN number is created for every GST Challan successfully generated by the taxpayer.

You can check the payment status by navigating to Services > Payments > Challan History.

  • If the status shows as INITIATED then the payment is still in process.
  • If the status shows FAILED, then you need to create another challan and make the payment.

Depending on the status of the challan, the debited amount may either get updated in the Electronic Cash Ledger or it may get credited to your bank account, which may take up to 24 Hrs.
