As per the clarification, done in the above referred circular, the TDS so deducted can be paid to the government by following under mentioned two options –

Bill Wise GST TDS Deduction

Under this option, TDS is required to be deducted and deposited for each bill, individually. It is required to generate CPIN (Common Portal Identification Number) (i.e. challan) for payment of TDS of each individual bill and such CPIN so generated should be mentioned in the bill itself. DDO needs to follow the below-mentioned steps:

Step 1

Bill should be prepared based on the expenditure sanctioned. It is mandatory to mention the net amount payable to the contractor and 2% TDS in the bill.

STEP 3

Generation of CPIN (i.e. challan) – While generating CPIN, payment mode needs to be selected which can be either (a) NEFT / RTGS or (b) OTC.

In case of NEFT / RTGS mode, it is required to mention the CPIN number (as beneficiary’s account number), RBI (as beneficiary) and IFSC code of the RBI with the request to payment authority to make the payment in favour of the RBI.

In case of OTC mode, it is necessary to request the payment authority to issue ‘A’ category government cheque, such cheque can be in favour of one of the 25 authorized banks. The cheque needs to be deposited along with the CPIN with any of the branches of the authorized bank so selected.

Step 4

Generation of CIN (Challan Identification Number) – When the payment is successfully processed, CIN would be generated by the RBI or the authorized bank and the said CIN so generated would be shared electronically with the GSTN portal.

Bunching of GST TDS Deduction 

In case of a large number of payments, an option I (mentioned above) would be practically impossible since a large number of challans would be required to be generated. In order to avoid such problem, option II has been provided and under option II TDS needs to be deducted from each bill and the same would be kept under the Suspense head.

Final deposit of this bunch amount from the suspense head can be done on weekly, monthly or any other periodic basis. In case of opting for option II, DDO needs to follow the below mentioned steps:

Step 1

Bill should be prepared based on the expenditure sanctioned. It is mandatory to mention the net amount payable to the contractor and 2% TDS in the bill. TDS amount needs to be mentioned in the bill for the recording of the same in the Suspense head.

Step 2

Maintenance of records –A proper record of TDS booked under the Suspense head need to be maintained in order to obtain total amount payable at the time of preparing CPIN.
