The taxpayer can adjust these liabilities with the available ITC and/or pay the balance through the electronic cash ledger. The taxpayer can make this payment online (via the GST portal) or offline (via the authorised over-the-counter banks). If the payment amount exceeds Rs. 10,000, it is mandatory for a taxpayer to pay the liabilities electronically. When done thorugh online medium, it becomes crucial to keep a track of the payment, to ensure the GST payment has been done successfully and you do not incur a penalty (due to failed payment) despite complying with GST rules in time.
