• Did not pay advance tax

I did not pay advance tax for fy 2020-21. Should have paid. 

I am a stock market trader & also have mf capital gain & dividends & savings acc interest. 

If I pay whatever I think is due for fy 2020-21 now itself, will it be paid as advance tax?

If not then under what category to pay it?

 I am hoping some amount of fine will reduce as a result when I file my return in June.
