Next 10 Digits
It is the PAN number of a business entity like your shop, mall or company.
13th Digit
It indicates the number of registrations as a business entity has within a state for the same PAN. 
It will be an alpha-numeric number (first 1-9 and then A-Z) and will be assigned on the basis of the number of registrations a legal entity (having the same PAN) has within one state.
Let say the company ABC registered in the same state for 5 times for different businesses. In such case, this digit will be printed as 5. Let us assume, the same company registered for around 15 times, then it should be represented as F (1-9 numeric and later on 10th registration be named as A and 11th as B and so on up to Z).
Hence, a business entity can register the GSTIN within a single state for the maximum of 35 times (1-9 and later on A-Z).
14th Digit 
It will be by default as Z.
15th Digit 
The last digit will be a check code which will be used for detection of errors.
