This option is used to pay the monthly Tax dues from the dealer’s Bank account to the account of Commercial Taxes Department (CTD) electronically. As such, Government of Puducherry and Banks have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the approval of Reserve Bank of India (RBI).
After verification of the Web Reference Number, all the required values as entered by you are displayed. If the Web Reference No. entered is invalid one the following message appears :- “Invalid Web Reference No.”.
Users are requested to verify the details as shown in the following screen titled as “e-Payment Details”. If the payments are made after the due date i.e. after 8.00 P.M. on 15th, the Penalty and C-Fees are calculated by the system itself for the belated submission, as per norms.

Even though the “Bank’s website screen may differ from bank to bank”, the process of payment are same for all the banks. For example, here we assumed that the dealer selected the INDIAN BANK for making payment; the following page will be displayed from the Bank’s website.
In the Indian Bank site, user will have two options.
They are :
a. Single user
b. Corporate user.
Select appropriate option and login using the Username and Password provided by the Bank. The Bank’s website will display all required information pertaining to the web reference number.

Based on the outcome of the transaction status will appear :-
** Payment Successful(Amount Transferred from the dealer’s bank account to the CTD)
** Payment Pending(It is only for Corporate User, awaiting Approval from another person )
** Payment Cancel(The dealer interrupts or connection failed situation)

Case 1 :
Payment Successful page is displayed by the Indian Bank

Case 2 : Payment Pending
In the case of corporate account, which requires authorisation, from higher authority-
