I made cash payment/ deposited a Cheque or a DD after the Challan expiry date and it was accepted by the bank. The payment status is still not updated on MCA portal. What should I do? If the Challan was accepted by bank, the status should be updated.

Since the payment was made after expiry date, it cannot be updated. If the bank has accepted the payment, it would be rejected by MCA. In such a scenario, approach the bank branch where you made the payment and seek refund for it. User should verify that the Challan has not expired while making the payment at the bank.

What should be done in case I generated a Challan to make an offline payment in a bank but I want to now make the payment via online (Credit Card or Net Banking) mode OR due to some reason I was unable to make the payment before the expiry date of the Challan?

Presently, there is no provision to make online payment against a SRN generated with payment mode as offline. You have to select the payment mode as "Online" or "Offline" before generating the SRN.

For mode of payment as Challan, fee has to be paid at bank branch only to get the service delivery. However, in case you are not able to make payment in the bank before the expiry date of Challan or you want to make the payment via online mode, you will have to upload the eForm again and generate a new SRN. The earlier SRN will not be considered in such a case and will stand cancelled.

Note: There is no provision to set-off of the Challan payment against payment made through Pay Miscellaneous fee - Individual option. There is no link between the original SRN against which filing was done and the SRN against which payment was made using Pay Miscellaneous

Fee – Individual option. In such a case, any payment made using Pay Miscellaneous Fee – Individual option shall be forfeited.

Click on 'Track Payment Status' link given on the home page. Enter the SRN details and find the payment status.

In case the payment status is 'PAID', DO NOT PAY AGAIN. Request for reversal of duplicate transactions done in such cases shall not be entertained.

For all SRNs where payment status is shown as"NOT PAID" and amount has been debited from the account, automatic reversal advice for crediting back the money will be issued to the concerned bank within 48 working hours. Verify the payment debit / credit status with your bank.

At times due to heavy network traffic your request may not get updated in real time and goes to a request queue. The service delivery is however done as soon as the request is cleared from the queue.

I have some problem/query related to payment on MCA21 Portal, to whom should it be escalated?

I have generated two challans after 26th March,2011 , the challan for MCA Service fees ( B series) is of more than Rs. 50,000 but the one for stamp duty of the same is below Rs. 50,000 . Will the bank accept the Stamp duty( D series) Challan?

In case MCA service fees is more than Rs. 50,000/- then challan payment can be made. In such case where challan has been generated for MCA service fees then irrespective of the amount of stamp duty, the payment of the same has to be made through Challan mode only. In such cases, the bank has to accept the payment through challan mode.
