As you may be aware, a Grievance Redressal Committee was formulated in the State of Karnataka comprising of officials from Goods & Services Tax Network (GSTN), Office of Principal Chief Commissioner of Central Tax along with various industry associations including NASSCOM.
In this regard, the third meeting of the committee was organised on January 8, 2021. The meetings was co-chaired by Mr. D.P. Nagendra Kumar, Principal Chief Commissioner of Central Tax and Mr. M.S Srikar, Commissioner of Commercial Taxes.
During the meeting, NASSCOM discussed some of the key issues highlighted by our members. These included issues relating to issuance of notices over email without uploading the same in the common GST portal, issuance of notices without providing reasons for rejecting the claim of the taxpayers, error while filing Statement 3A of Form GST RFD-01 in cases where realisation value is greater than the invoice value and issuance of summons notices by Director General of GST Intelligence (DGGI).
Apart from this, we had also submitted a note highlighting issues faced by the e-commerce industry. These include cancellation or suspension of registration under section 29 of CGST Act, Rule 21 and Rule 21A of CGST Rules. The Committee will pursue the policy related issues with GST Policy Wing to arrive at a feasible solution.
We look forward to working with the Government to ensure that GST policies are in line with the needs of the industry.
