(a) Once you are on the final step i.e. you have selected the mode of online payment through the bank then remember to choose Retail instead of corporate as generally individuals will have to use Retail gateway of the bank.
(b) Once the online payment is successful; remember to save the online receipt as it does not come to your email id and you can save that receipt from the screen or download it as a pdf file. So, do have a power back up when you are either maing income tax payment or service tax payment as these receipts can not be again generated.
(c) Any payment made after 11 PM are reflected on next day. So preferably make the payments before that cut off time.
