Circular No.ES/47/2018-19                                                                            May 14, 2018

To: Members of the Council


Dear Member,

We are glad to inform you that SRTEPC has launched a “GST CAMP” today i.e. 14th May, 2018 in its Head Office in Mumbai in association with ZADN Associates, Chartered Accountants.

Shri Arivazhagan, Joint Commissioner-GST (Refunds) of Mumbai South flagged off the “GST Camp”. This camp was well attended by member-exporters of SRTEPC, the team of ZADN & Associates and Officials and Staff of the Council.

During the Camp, member-exporters discussed the problems faced by them which was mainly on –

  • IGST/ITC refunds that is blocking substantial amount of their working capital and has put the exporters into financial hardships thereby disrupting their efforts to step up exports.
  • One of the most common reasons pointed out was the delay in refunds due to mismatch of data between the GST forms and shipping bills.
  • Some members raised the query that they had wrongly entered the figures in Table 3.1 (A) of GSTR 3B instead of entering it under Table 3.1 (B) of GSTR 3B and hence it showed error thereby unable to rectify this error.
  • GSTN Validation was held due to the error occurred as the figure is wrongly entered in Table 3.1 (A) of GSTR 3B instead of Table 3.1 (B) of GSTR 3B due to which the integration of GSTR data with ICEGATE is not possible and hence refund cannot be processed manually.

The Joint Commissioner assured the members present that he would look into their matter and try to resolve them at the earliest.

He further added that GST Seva Kendra’s are set up based on range and division. Hence, based on the applicable jurisdiction, the taxpayer can contact the nearest GST Seva Kendra. GST Seva Kendra Centre’s can help with GST registration, GST migration, GST return filing and GST queries. Taxpayers can walk-in to the Centre without an appointment or fix an appointment before approaching the Centre for help. You can choose the appropriate jurisdiction/location based on your pin code. The GST Range officer will examine the query and furnish the Certificate which can be submitted to the Customs for refund or other processes.

Since the 2nd & the Final round of the GST Camp will be organized tomorrow i.e. 15th May, 2018, I once again request all our members to grab this opportunity and attend this Camp in large numbers for resolving your issues.

Do not miss the opportunity!!!!

Thanking You,

Yours faithfully,
