Gentlemen/ Sir/ Madam,

Activity Codes are numerical codes that are used to define the activities of an economic unit. These codes are developed by National Industrial Classification (NIC) 2008. It is a standardized system of classification of economic activities essential for meaningful collection of data relating to such activities. This classification does not draw the distinction according to the kind of ownership, type of legal organization, type of technology and scale or mode of operation. It only classifies the economic activities under taken by economic units. The National Industrial Classification (NIC) is an essential statistical standard for developing and maintaining comparable data base according to economic activities. The National Industrial Classification (NIC) 2008 is a revised version of NIC 2004, It seeks to provide a basis for the standardize collection, analysis and dissemination of economic activity in India. There are 21 sections, 88 divisions, 238 groups, 403 classes and 1304 sub-classes.

2. Part II, Table -3 of the e-704 contains the columns in regards to Activity code and Activity Description. The Activity Codes are available on the Website www.mahavat.gov.in in the chapter of instructions for filing of e-704 and are self explanatory in nature. Out of 403 classes devised by NIC 2008 the department has chosen 236 classes for Sales Tax purposes. These 236 classes having four digit codes are available on the website www.mahavat.gov.in . Few dealers may not find their business activity among the activity codes mentioned in www.mahavat.gov.in . They may log on to www.mospinic.in an official website of Central Statistical Organization (CSO) where they may find the (NIC) 2008 and the class of their activity with four digit code in the detailed structure. It is necessary to specify the class codes out of 403 classes available in NIC-2008.

3. At present, suitability of data collection, the department has decided to adopt four digit code which specify the class of activity only. Therefore, the sub classes having five digits should not be mentioned and only the classes specifying four digits should be mentioned in e-704 at present.

4. The Activity codes in the website also express inclusion and exclusion statements to remove ambiguity in the scope of classification.

5. The business activity carried on in the State of Maharashtra must be specified in the columns of activity codes. For example, the dealer may have manufacturing in the other state and trading in the State of Maharashtra , then he must specify the trading activity in the column.

6. The dealer may have multiple business activities. In such cases five major business activities contributing to the revenue shall be specified with their turnover and taxes.
