The Government has not provided the reason and resolution for this error. The main reason for this error might be high load on the GSTN / GST Portal Here are some possible solution for ‘Checksum Validation: Failed’ error

  • Try deleting browsing history: In your browser Go to Settings and delete browsing data.

Google Chrome users can do this by pressing Ctrl + Shift + Delete. A new window will open. Click on ‘Clear Data’.

  • Change your web browser: Login to GST Portal using Internet Explorer. Many times errors while filing a return on chrome are resolved while filing GST returns using Internet Explorer.
  • File GST Return at night: Since the traffic on the GST Portal / GSTN is less at night try filing your GST Return after 10 p.m.

If the error still persists after trying the above-mentioned solutions send a mail to GSTN with the screenshot of the error.
