GST Registration within 30 Days for Risk-Based Profiles

As per rule 9(1)(aa) of the CGST Rules, 2017, when a person has applied for GST registration and has done Aadhaar Authentication, but is identified as risk base profile, his registration application will be processed after carrying out physical verification of places of business.

As per this rule, the registration shall be granted within thirty days of application submission, after physical verification of the place of business.

However, this 30-day time limit is not properly implemented and such registrations are getting delayed.

Therefore, on 28th February 2024, GSTN issued a message on the common portal about the issue!

Message on GST portal

The following message is displayed on the GST common portal:

“Subject: Instances of Delay in Registration Reported by some Taxpayers Despite Successful Aadhar Authentication by Rule 8 and 9 CGST, Rules, 2017-reg

28/02/2024

Dear Taxpayers,

By Rule 9 of the Central Goods and Services Tax (CGST) Rules, 2017, about the verification and approval of registration applications, the following is informed:
Where a person has undergone Aadhaar authentication as per sub-rule (4A) of rule 8 but has been identified in terms of Rule 9(aa) by the common portal for detailed verification based on risk profile, your application for registration would be processed within thirty days of application submission.
Necessary changes would also be made to reflect the same in the online tracking module vis-à-vis processing of registration application.
Thank you for your attention.

Thanking you,
Team GSTN”

What is rule 8(4A) of CGST rules, 2017?

Rule 8 covers provisions related to the Application for Registration.

The text of Sub-rule 4A of the same is as follows:

“Where an applicant, other than a person notified under sub-section (6D) of section 25, opts for authentication of Aadhaar number, he shall, while applying sub-rule (4), undergo authentication of Aadhaar number and the date of submission of the application in such cases shall be the date of authentication of the Aadhaar number, or fifteen days from the submission of the application in Part B of FORM GST REG-01 under sub-rule (4), whichever is earlier.

Provided that every application made under sub-rule (4) by a person, other than a person notified under sub-section (6D) of section 25, who has opted for authentication of an Aadhaar number and is identified on the common portal, based on data analysis and risk parameters, shall be followed by biometric-based Aadhaar authentication and taking photograph of the applicant where the applicant is an individual or of such individuals concerning the applicant as notified under sub-section (6C) of section 25 where the applicant is not an individual, along with the verification of the original copy of the documents uploaded with the application in FORM GST REG-01 at one of the Facilitation Centres notified by the Commissioner for this sub-rule and the application shall be deemed to be complete only after completion of the process laid down under this proviso.”

To summarise this, rule 8(4A) states that when a person applying for registration opts for Aadhaar Authentication, the date of submission of the application should be considered as the date of authentication of the Aadhaar number, or fifteen days from the submission of the application, whichever is earlier.

What is rule 9(1) of CGST rules, 2017?

Rule 9 covers provisions related to the Verification of the application of the GST registration and approval.
The text of it’s sub-rule 1 is as follows:

“(1) The application shall be forwarded to the proper officer who shall examine the application and the accompanying documents and if the same are found to be in order, approve the grant of registration to the applicant within seven working days from the date of submission of the application.

Provided that where-
(a) a person, other than a person notified under sub-section (6D) of section 25, fails to undergo authentication of Aadhaar number as specified in sub-rule (4A) of rule 8 or does not opt for authentication of Aadhaar number; or
(aa) a person, who has undergone authentication of an Aadhaar number as specified in sub-rule (4A) of rule 8, is identified on the common portal, based on data analysis and risk parameters, for carrying out physical verification of places of business; or
(b) the proper officer, with the approval of an officer authorized by the Commissioner not below the rank of Assistant Commissioner, deems it fit to carry out physical verification of places of business,

the registration shall be granted within thirty days of application submission, after physical verification of the place of business, in the manner provided under rule 25 and verification of such documents as the proper officer may deem fit.”

As per the above proviso (aa) to rule 9(1), if the officer identifies any application for which carrying out physical verification of the business premises is required, the time limit of 7 days from the date application shall be extended to 30 days.

Conclusion

Now, GSTN has issued a clear message on the common portal that such delayed applications will be processed within 30 days of the application. Alterations will be implemented to align the online tracking module with the processing of registration applications.
