Textile traders in trouble without GST number
Surat: It has been made sure that the traders will get their GST numbers within three days. But the traders did not get their GST number and could not verify their PAN card number since 15 days due to the technical problem in the server of IT department. This affects the business and they face difficulties to file the tax returns.
The traders can trade with the ARN and DRN numbers but the GST number is required to file the tax and to fill the report of purchase and sales. The trade has reduced to 50% as the traders from other states are not buying good without GST numbers. To get the GST number, they have to visit VAT and Excise department frequently.
The PAN verification has not been done due to the server was down from 25 July to 3 August. And if the tax return will not be filed by 20 August, they will be charged 100 rupees per day and the technical troubles will not be counted.
Readymade garment traders are also facing trouble. Traders are looking forward to getting the GST numbers.
