Now just be sure as it will just ask you to confirm and moment you click confirm payment, the payment goes in govt service tax account. It does not ask second authentication as it happens with normal transactions. So be careful and cross and recheck all details before clicking the last button.
Step 7
On successful payment, the following page receipt appears for  bank which provides all the details. Immediately save below screenshot as in the bottom it is written that this can not be regenerated. Now this is very wrong on part of income tax department and they must include an email id to which service tax receipt should be sent. Nonetheless save it in email by sending it to your CA or print it for future reference.


Verdict
It is a good system of online payment and helps one to save time and one gets instantaneous receipt else if one deposit cheque in bank for service tax, than one has to recollect receipt from bank as they issue receipt only once the cheque has been realised. Income tax deptt has to become net savvy by sending a receipt in email and it is a must to avoid in case computer fails due to mechanical or electrical failure.
