Enabling API access for GST system

It is a one-time activity of enabling API access. It is required to be undertaken for every GSTIN. It will allow you to communicate with the GST system seamlessly through third-party applications i.e. here IRIS Credixo.

After enabling the API access, the connection with GST system is established by providing the OTP which is sent to the mobile number registered with GST system.

While enabling the access for API, you will also need to specify the duration for which the connection with GST system can be kept active, without the need to generate OTP again in the specified duration. The GST system currently allows the session duration to be set as 6 hours or 30 days. It is recommended that a longer duration be specified so that OTP need not be generated frequently.
