Yes. In terms of Section 25(9) of the CGST/SGST Act, all notified UN bodies, Consulates or Embassies of foreign countries and any other class of persons so notified would be required to obtain a unique identification number (UIN) from the GST portal. The structure of the said ID would be uniform across the States in conformity with GSTIN structure and the same will be common for the Centre and the States.
