What is GSTIN?

Before GST was implemented, all dealers registered under the state VAT law were assigned a unique TIN number by the respective state tax authorities. Similarly, service providers were assigned a service tax registration number by the Central Board of Excise and Custom (CBEC).

In the new GST regime, all registered taxpayers will get consolidated into one single platform for compliance and administration purposes and will be assigned registration under a single authority. It is expected that 8 million taxpayers will be migrated from various platforms into GST.

All of these businesses will be assigned a unique Goods and Services Tax Identification Number (GSTIN)

Structure of GSTIN

Each taxpayer is assigned a state-wise PAN-based 15-digit Goods and Services Taxpayer Identification Number (GSTIN). Here is a format break-down of the GSTIN:

  • The first two digits represent the state code as per Indian Census 2011. Every state has a unique code.
  • The next ten digits will be the PAN number of the taxpayer
  • The thirteenth digit will be assigned based on the number of registration within a state
  • The fourteenth digit will be Z by default
  • The last digit will be for check code. It may be an alphabet or a number.

How to apply for GSTIN?

It is part of the GST Registration process. Once the application is approved by the GST officer, a unique GSTIN is allocated to the dealer.

There are two ways to register for GST:

  • via GST Online Portal
  • via GST Seva Kendra

What is the cost of obtaining GSTIN ?

Obtaining GSTIN and Registering for GST are free of cost.
