Payments will have to be made through appropriate mechanisms - electronic (credit card, Internet banking) or traditional means (at the bank counter through challan).

(b) If the user selects the traditional payment option, the system will generate 3 copies of pre-filled challan in the prescribed format. Traditional payments through cash, cheques can be done at the designated network of banks using the system generated challan. There will be five banks with estimated 200 branches authorized for accepting challan payments.

Filing will be complete only when the necessary payments are made.
In case of a rejection, helpful remedial tips will be provided to the applicant.
The applicants will be provided an acknowledgement through e-mail or alternatively they can check the MCA portal.
If payment of challan is not made before the expiry date, the transaction gets cancelled and applicant needs to file the eForm again on MCA portal to generate a fresh challan for payment.
Once a challan is generated, its payment has to be made in an auhorised bank branch. Payment against e-Filing should not be made using any mode of payment on MCA portal e.g. Miscellaneous Fee option, as in such a case the payment made does not get linked with the original Filing Transaction / SRN.
Always check the payment status of original / previous SRN before trying to make payment again for the same transaction. If the payment status is ‘Paid’ do not pay again.
The SRN No. is the key for verification of status of e-Filing. Please note down the SRN generated by the system before making the payment / for the purpose of checking the payment / transaction status.
