Sometimes, there might be problems generating the GST provisional ID for your business even if you possess an existing registration of tax into the Entertainment Tax, Luxury Tax, Entry Tax, VAT, Service Tax or Central Excise. In that case, you will have to contact the respective officer of the department of tax.
The flowchart given below describes the steps involved in issuing the provisional ID if somehow it is not generated.
Provisional ID of the GST not working
If the provisional ID does not work after the service tax login, then the following steps can be followed to solve the trouble-shooting.
First you have to check if a provisional ID has been issued in your PAN through the tool called the Check Registration Status on the portal of GST. If the GST-issued provisional ID do not work at the time of the process of enrolment, then there is a possibility that the ID may have been inactive, cancelled or just expired. With the help of the Check Registration Status item, the following status can be checked.
This explains that the GST Provisional ID has been issued but the application given for the enrolment of the existing tax payer has not been filed after the attachment of the digitalized signatures.
Pending for Verification
This explains that the application has been given in properly but the process of validation through the system including the external agencies is still pending. Once the verification has been done, the status will get updated.
Validation against Error
This indicates that the details written in the PAN do not match with the ones available in the database of the CBDT. So it is important that you fill in the details which match the information written in the PAN card and submit the form again.
This indicated that the application for the service tax login has been successfully shifted into the GST portal. After this, no alterations can be performed on the application anymore. The certificate for the Provisional Registration will be found at the portal after the given due date (that is, the date starting from which the GST Act will be begin performing).
This explains that if the existing registration gets cancelled, the application for the Provisional ID will remain cancelled as well. This also means that the initially the ID may have been generated as well as issued but then got cancelled. The plausible reason can be that the existing registration got cancelled due to the mention of incorrect information. To solve this issue, it is best to contact the Department of Tax of the respective tax and the reasons out.

If any mismatch occurs between the email of the Provisional ID and the password, then you can follow the steps given below in the image to solve the error.
