As per section 49(4) of the CGST Act, the amount available in the Electronic Credit Ledger can be used toake payment of 'output tax' only.
Hence, 'penalty' cannot be paid by credit ledger.

However, due to amendment in the rule it is optional. Thus,if in response to such intimation u/s 74 (5) person pays such ascertained tax and interest, then he will required to pay penalty equivalent to 15 % of the such tax in fraud case. And no penalty is payable under section 73 (5) for normal case.
