The official GST website of the government is www.gst.gov.in, also known as the GST Portal /GSTN portal. It helps taxpayers with a variety of services, including getting GST registration, filing GST returns, applying for refunds, and canceling their GST registration.
The fact that the tax administration must rely heavily on technology is a key component of the GST regime. Taxpayers will no longer be obliged to visit tax agencies in person for assessments or to file applications or returns, despite the fact that facilitation centers are located throughout India. All communications, such as approving, rejecting, or responding to applications, can be done through the GST portal. It comprises the department's notification of notices and a window for taxpayers to react to them.
Services are provided (Registration, Challans, Refund Tracking)
On the GST Portal, there are five options under the 'Services' category.
To begin with, the services tab includes a link to apply for a new GST registration. If a person's turnover exceeds Rs 20 lakh and he sells both products and services, he must register for GST (Rs 10 lakh for NE and hill states). The maximum for a sole supplier of goods is Rs 40 lakh, subject to certain criteria. In our post on GST Registration Limits, we go over the specifics of the threshold limit.
On the GST Portal, you can apply for GST registration online.
The next tab you'll come across is "Payments." A challan can be created and paid by any GST-registered taxpayer. There's also a way to keep track of your progress.
Use the GST portal's 'Track Application Status' feature for registration and refunds as well.

This category is a list of links to the commercial tax websites of the Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) and the states/UTs. The links contain the CGST Act and Rules, the SGST Act and Rules, and all other GST-related legislation and rules. There are also links to the most recent GST notices, changes, and circulars.
You may look up a taxpayer's GSTIN/UIN or PAN to see who they are and what GSTINs they have registered under their PAN. This function is accessible on the main page as well as after logging in. By inputting either the GSTIN or the state from where he is registered, you can discover a composition dealer who has opted in or out of the system.
Many how-to guides, ‘System requirements' for various GST files, ‘User-manuals, Videos and FAQs,' and a link to the grievance redressal site may be found under the help button on the GST portal homepage. There are also alerts on new facilities and a list of faults with solutions. The GST site has just received a list of GST Suvidha Providers (GSPs) as well as a list of free accounting and billing software. These have been made available to users on the GST portal to help them with any issues or questions they may have about the return filing process, GST registration, and so on.
