Once the application process is complete, the GST department issues a certificate of registration to the business which mentions the GST Identification Number i.e. GSTIN.
GSTIN is allotted on the basis of PAN and State of the taxpayer. On entering the PAN of the business and the State in which the business is registered, you can fetch the details of name of business entity, GSTIN of business, registered mobile number and registered email address.

However, in case of non-resident taxable person PAN is not mandatory and registration can be granted on the basis of any other prescribed document.

There can be more than one GSTIN on a single PAN if the assessee has branches in multiple states or separate business verticals within a single state.
