Yesterday by mistake, selected wrong assessment year while paying advance tax.

There is option in Income tax website to correct the challan, however, I am trying to correct the challan but getting below error:


Challan Identification Number(CIN) mentioned is incorrect, kindly verify the entered detail.

What should be done? As challan can be corrected only within 7 days and even after 24 hours, I am getting this error and not able to rectify.
