SMS BASED SERVICE FOR CHALLAN STATUS
National Securities Depository Limited (NSDL) provides CIN (Challan Identification Number) based view of direct tax challans to taxpayers to know the status of challan on its web-site. In addition to the above facility, NSDL has launched a Short Message Service (SMS) based facility to know the status of its challans. The procedure for availing this facility is as under:
- The tax payer can send an SMS to 575758 with a message containing the word CSI followed by a space and CIN provided by the respective Bank at the time of making the Direct tax payment.
- The CIN should be separated by comma (,).
- Challan Identification Number (CIN) consists of details such as BSR Code of Collecting Branch (seven digit) , Challan Tender Date (DDMMYYYY) and Challan Serial No (length less than or equal to 5 digit) and Amount.
- The amount is an optional field. If the amount is entered by the tax payer he would get the confirmation whether amount entered is matched or otherwise as per NSDL database.
For e.g., if the tax payer input “CSI 0510001,11032009,5,5000” where in “0510001” is the BSR code of the collecting branch,
“11032009” is the Challan tender date, “5” is the Challan serial number and “5000 is the amount paid by the taxpayer.
The tax payer will get the information against which TAN/PAN the payment has been accounted with the confirmation whether amount entered is matched or not. (This is an illustrative challan identification number, actual CIN should be provided in the SMS).
There will be special charges for these SMS. These charges may vary from one mobile service-provider to another. The charge structure can be obtained from the concerned service-provider. The status of the CIN based view will continue to be available from NSDL-TIN web-site www.tin-nsdl.com or NSDL Call Centre at 020-27218080 or Aykar Sampark Kendra at 0124- 2438000.
