Taxpayers deposit money using challan and the paid amount gets credited in the particular head in the Electronic Cash ledger and the same can be utilized in settling liabilities of that head only. In case a taxpayer deposited any amount under a major head i.e. IGST, CGST, SGST/UTGST and Cess or minor head i.e. Tax, Interest, Penalty, Fee and Others, they can then utilize this amount for discharging their liabilities only under that major head and minor head. Sometimes, inadvertently, the taxpayer pays the amount under the wrong head and it cannot be used to discharge the liabilities which may be due in another head. In such cases taxpayers can claim the refund of the amount which may have been deposited under wrong head in GST by filing a refund application in FORM RFD-01 under the category "Excess balance in electronic cash ledger". The process of filing refund claim and its disbursement can sometimes lead to blockage of funds for the taxpayer.

A taxpayer can file GST PMT 09 for transfer of any amount of tax, interest, penalty, fee or others available under one (major or minor) head to another (major or minor) head in the Electronic Cash Ledger.
