The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs ( CBIC ) has enabled the Form PMT-09 for shifting the wrongly paid the Input Tax Credit ( ITC ).

The CBIC has recently introduced Form PMT-09 (i.e. a challan) for shifting wrongly paid Input Tax Credit. This enables a registered taxpayer to transfer any amount of tax, interest, penalty, etc. that is available in the electronic cash ledger, to the appropriate tax or cess head under IGST, CGST and SGST in the electronic cash ledger.

Hence, if a taxpayer has wrongly paid CGST instead of SGST, he can now rectify the same using Form PMT-09 by reallocating the amount from the CGST head to the SGST head.

All taxpayers registered under GST are eligible to shift any balances available in the electronic cash ledger using Form GST PMT-09. The option is available after the taxpayer logs in, under the electronic cash ledger tab. Thus, a taxpayer can now easily rectify wrongly paid taxes or other amounts.
